Kings Lock, Aire and Calder Navigation

 We spent a few days in Leeds and were joined on our last night by Jan and Bowman from Rivendell, which was a good excuse for dinner at Mumtaz again and strict instructions from Bowman not to wake him when we left.

Then at 0645 we slipped our moorings and set off down the Aire and Calder to Castleford Junction before turning right towards Stanley Ferry.

We got a text message to say that we did not disturb anybody on leaving.

Some of the locks on this stretch are so BIG.  Mr David is in this lock somewhere!

This is Castleford Junction.  Turn left for Selby and Goole and right for Dewsbury, Huddersfield and Brighouse.  Go straight on and you end up on the weir.

Not a very good photograph of this card.  A white card blank and a decoupaged Forever Friends bear on a Cuttlebugged heart.  Four red gem hearts decorate the top of the sides.
