Top lock Foxton
You can never get tired of the stupendous view down the flight
One of the volunteer Lock keepers that helped me down the flight
At the bottom of the flight is the shop and Bridge 61 pub, this building was once the carpenters workshops.
On reaching the bottom we turned left in the direction of Leicester and headed for Debdale Wharf Marina which is just over a mile along the canal.
Moored at Debdale getting gas and diesel. This is where they lift out boats for blacking.
We had a word with Tim about enlarging Yarwood's gas locker hatch as getting bottles in and out is somewhat tricky. This is a job that we get done during the winter. While we were getting fuel another boat turned up, some rough bunch on a boat called Nb.What a Lark - Friends David and Lisa and sister Melanie back to moor up after their trip into Market Harborough.
Nb. What a Lark waiting for fuel
A cheery wave to Lisa, David and Melanie and we were off back towards Foxton.
Heading back towards Foxton
Moored for a couple of days by bridge 63 just short of the junction with the Harborough Arm.
