Hebden Bridge, Rochdale Canal
No alarms or excursions today. David was up early and moved the boat up to the lock landing ready to get to the big Tuel Lane lock for 0830 when it opened, but just as he was moving off the new lock keeper arrived and said that we could go straight on up as there were 8 boats at the top waiting to get down.
When we arrived at Hebden Bridge there was only a couple of spare moorings - by the time we left there were 7 boats with patrol notices - ours being the only one without one.
Love Hebden Bridge, lots of lovely little shops, good food and lovely buildings.
I made this card as a good luck in your new job card for David who have left the BBC and gone to work as a head gardener.
