Bablock Hythe

Sue helps the lock keeper at Shifford lock

Newbridge is a favourite bridge of ours, The Maybush Inn beside the bridge has gone through a major refurbishment, the brewery are now looking for a new landlord/lady.

The Maybush

Northmoor lock is on self service, we share the lock with another narrowboat, the skipper on her way back to the Leeds and Liverpool canal is a widower who is continuing to enjoy her boating.

Sue shuts Northmoor lock.

We have reached Bablock Hythe our mooring for the next couple of nights, we were going to have a meal in the Ferryman Inn but it's shut on a Tuesday. We were offered a lift to the Red Lion by a skipper we allowed to share our mooring pin, but declined the offer. Tomorrow evening there's exciting entertainment at the Ferryman - we plan not to miss it.

This chap was fishing opposite our mooring.
