Going under the A14 road bridge and not a lorry in sight..
Lining up for our transit through the Huntingdon Town bridge
Yarwood in the Houghton Mill lock landing. This is a bit on the high side for narrowboats and getting in here without damage to paintwork was a trifle problematic especially as the wind was getting lively.
Lock number two, Houghton Mill
EricaAs we wound through the lovely Hemmingfords we spotted 'Erica' moored up. We had spoken to the owners yesterday when they were in Godmanchester. This lovely little craft is a replica Inspection Launch built by Peter Nicholls at Braunston . These type of boats were built for canal company bigwigs to inspect there investments in the days of privately owned and funded canals. Steering is by wheel rather than tiller and the wheel is towards the front.
Lock three, the Hemmingford Lock
Onwards past St. Ives and through this lovely bridge
St Ives river frontage
Our fourth and final lock of the day, St. Ives lock
Moored up in splendid isolation ...bar a few cows that is.
