Tuesday Joe returned our car to storage, I called the River Inspectors for the R.Nene and then booked our slot to lock up on to the Nene from the Middle levels. As soon as Joe got back to March we were off...
It took 5 hours to get to Stanground where we moored overnight on the lock landing so we were ready for Tina, the Lock keeper, at 9am sharp the next morning.

Overnight mooring at Stanground lock mooring- special permission granted as we were going through on Wednesday morning early.
Ten and half months after we left the River Nene for the Middle Levels and River Great Ouse we are back....at last. I can't tell you how good that feels to be on the move agaqin is wonderful!
