Skipton, Leeds & Liverpool

Rain was forecast today, so we decided to press on to Skipton. So the Bank Newton locks were done in the drizzle and then it cleared up a bit.

We came across NEW LOCK GATES!! Both top and bottom locks, and they were so new you could smell the new wood. Both gates were leaking already though.

Gargrave was quiet, three hireboats and two others on the moorings.

What can you do with the drunken paddle?

We managed to slot into our favourite mooring in Skipton opposite the boatyard in the Springs Branch and I collected the mail that David had so kindly sent us.

And now for a day's rest.

I covered a white card blank with a printed clipart of a race track and then added the car and a computer generated sentiment.
