We set off quite early and reached the summit lock just as 2 boats were coming down. So we asked the lock keeper if we could go through today (we were booked for tomorrow). He was waiting for a hire boat coming up at 11am and we could go through with them.
So, instead of a nice easy day we ended up going down the locks to Littleborough with Sussex, the hire boat.
I was so knackered that I went to bed at 6.30 and woke up at 5.30.
This is a view from the eastern end of the summit.
This is another view from near the top. The photographed matted onto white, purple and silver card and fixed onto a lilac card blank. A peel-off of bull rushes is stuck down onto the bottom left hand corner of the photo.
