That's a bit of a shame. Looks like the boat has been recently blacked otherwise you could have had a freeby, no need for docking.

Well, if anyone knows how to sort that out, it'll be the Buffer. Amazing what a proper Chief Boatswain's Mate could do with a set of sheerlegs!

Ah, thank you.

No, I don't recognise that gate but I don't think I'd leave a boat in the middle of a flight closed for maintainence.

It’s a permanent offside mooring, presumably they decided they to leave it there when the pound was going to be drained

That was not there the day before the flight shut. I’m saying nothing.....

It's not at all unusual for that pound at Braunston to be far enough down for that boat to be on the bottom, even if there us no stoppage there.

It's one of the worst in the flight for going down.

More curious is that on more than one occasion we have found this boat adrift.  Despite it being its permanent mooring, it is often nor well tied up,

What's wrong with talking about ladies hosiery?

How did this thread get on to Hosiery? Our experience is higher, as it were. A couple of bikini tops from the North Stratford and a very nice black lacy camisole number from the winding hole at Cambrian Wharf.

It seems to me who admittedly does not boat here any more that it Was never accepted to moor in a flight let alone have a permanent mooring. How times change. I was amused to see CARTs men pumping the same water around the second lock, it ran backwards into the sump so pumped out and back again. Nothing really changes.

Don't see what all the fuss is about. That's pretty much par for the course if you want to pull in at a lock landing on the Huddersfield Narrow.;)

If you look closely you can just see it, hidden behind all the reeds :D

That looks a nice canal. 

It is absolutely gorgeous. We did it for the first time a few weeks back and it has probably pushed the L&L around Skipton into second place among my favourite stretches of canal. That photo doesn't begin to capture the beauty and sheer scale of the Pennine scenery.

It is spectacular but the novelty soon wears off when you've done it  few times.
