Lemonroyde, Aire and Calder Navigation

Wakefield Flood Lock it's there somewhere!

Ah! the joys of the Aire and Calder. Electric locks and proper barges!
For us, a long, long day. Even so we reached Lemonroyde by 11am and decided to stay as the wind was gale force. Good job we did. It started to rain almost as soon as we tied the ropes up. Then it was a couple of hours sleep to get over our exertions.

Pretty lilac card with lilac gingham ribbon, lilac mulberry paper and a decoupaged bear matted onto more lilac card.

I think you meant "Wakefield Flood Lock" in your caption!

Thank you for the correction Martin. Unfortunately I have never been able to tell the difference between Wakefield and Dewsbury, even from the bus!
