This morning we took another walk up into Newark to visit the market.

A very different scene in the Market Square from yesterday, a very busy market. We returned to the boat and set off downstream.

We pulled into the moorings below Nether lock to empty both toilet cassettes, unfortunately whilst trying to pick one up my back went again, darn! The Railway ahead is the East Coast Main line.

We moored up on the pontoon above Cromwell lock, this is as far downstream we are going. After lunch we took a walk to Cromwell lock.
