Approaching the swing bridge


Photo Information
The moorings on the left are to allow craft to wait whilst a crew member opens the swing bridge.
Once the craft is through the swing bridge and the crew have closed it they then have to run on about 200m to open the lock which is just out of view around a sharp bend.
The green lawn seen just under the bridge is the garden of a popular pub and the patrons get great pleasure from seeing novice narrow boaters make a right mess of negotiating the bridge, the sharp bend and the narrow lock entrance.
All good free entertainment !

Despite your description it looks very tranquil
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
