Above Field Three Locks, Leeds and Liverpool Canal

I think this has been the longest day we have ever done on the boat. We left Clarence Dock at 0715 and finished here, 10 miles, 18 locks and 7 swing bridges later at 1515. I shall certainly sleep tonight!
We stopped off at the BW sanitary station by the BW offices. The Downey Two Rise locks outside were in an appalling state. Paddle gear not working etc, etc. You can usually tell when you are near BW offices - unlicenced, overstaying boats and the locks don't work. This picture is of the rubbish collection point. The two orange bins were empty - all the rubbish was scattered around them.
Obviously no bonuses for cleanliness or upkeep!

Hi Brenda,
I hope you enjoyed Clarence dock the second time around. We certainly had fun there. I look forward to your next bit of the journey. I am still writing up my Leeds and Liverpool Journey blog from April. We will be back at Reedley Marina in Burnley from June 13th to 20th so we might see you somewhere on the L&L if you are still around.
All the best
