There is only room in the for 3 or 4 full length narrowboats to moor in the dock at present and sometimes especially in high season you just can not moor. But there is room for at least another 10 boats in the inner basin . But there is a low bridge that can be lifted which prevents entry to this basin . For some unknown reason either Canal and River Trust or Leeds Dock will not lift the bridge to allow visiting boats in. As in many places around the country they don’t seem to want visiting boaters .
I just love Guns and have had them in one form or another for most of my life . I actually had a shotgun similar to the one on the right which is a 5 shot automatic 12 bore . I also had a one similar to the side by side model next to it and several under and over shotguns. So the display brought back some good memories from my shooting days.
We have now spent longer here than we had intended to ,but it was well worth it .We now have 127 miles and 97 locks to do in the next 12 days to make our booking in to Liverpool. It means doing an average of about 5 hours a day which should be achievable as we head across the Pennines on The Leeds and Liverpool canal. (I just hope we can make it). Tomorrow it will be an early start as we have been told we need to get through the outskirts of Leeds which we have been told is Bandit country.
