Stone to Tixall Lock

The day started dull and drizzly in patches, but changed to more showers with sunny periods as the day progressed. We arrived at Sandon lock to join a queue of boats, we were 6th in the queue. The bottom plate at the head of the lock had become detached, which BW had to come out and repair, which they had done promptly with 2 brand new shiney D shackles as can be seen in the photo.
Once through we pressed on with the intention to moor at Tixall Wide if there was room, which there wasn't so we carried on to above Tixall lock were we have moored and an excellent mooring it is too.

Keith.
