Down stream to Brampton Mill

After a pleasant and  quiet night in St.Neots we made a leisurely start, filling with water and then washing one side of the boat before heading down stream towards the Town lock.  We were only planning to cover eight miles or so and three locks, a comfortable trip that would give me plenty of time to walk the dogs and Joe time to do whatever Joe wanted to do which turned out to be fishing this afternoon.

Yarwood on the lock landing at St. Neots lock
Filling the beast
And away cruising through some beautiful countryside on clear water

Approaching Offord lock, our second of the day and it's in our favour
I much prefer the size of this lock
And finally,  Brampton Lock
Brampton Water Mill, now a pub and restaurant and the only surviving mill of the four along this stretch of water.  The little ferry boat will be busy all weekend transporting passengers to and from Godmanchester.

Just moored up at Brampton on the Goba moorings in fact Joe is still securing the centre line..
