A pleasant days run, until we got to Sandon Lock and the ground paddle wouldn’t shut any more than this.

Jo phoned C&RT and within 2 minutes of her call a C&RT truck pulled up, now that is what I call service! The man struggled for a few minutes to clear the obstruction.

But eventually we were able to close the paddle and proceed on our journey. Although he had shifted whatever it was from the paddle, he still had to get it out, or it was going to be sucked back in again, hope he managed it without too much more effort. We are now moored with a view across Shugborough Estate.
