The Shroppie Fly
Most of the boat traffic was heading north so all the locks were in our favour as we worked up through the flight and all weekend there was a lot of activity. Volunteer lock keepers were out and also a team of volunteers scrapping old paint from lock beams and applying new paint.
One of the benefits of C&RT, a growing army of volunteers to get things done.
Moored behind The Cheese Boat is Sue Cawson's Nb.Thea resplendent in it's new shiny livery.
I love the bow...and the boat
We stayed moored up above the locks for the whole weekend with the local farmer busy cutting hay on Friday and Saturday and 'turning it' - there is probably a technical term that my farming buddies will make me aware of - to get it dry. He, the farmer, was busy until gone eleven last night.
Hay cut and hopefully, drying
