Barlick to Barrowford

Time to move on today, this morning James from the 'canvas man' returned the repaired side panel of the cratch & I am impressed, the repair looks very neat & cost only £37, very good value I think.

We have had a cracking weekend with old friends & Sid learnt how to climb up a tree, unfortunately he's not mastered the art of climbing down yet so it took an hour of much coaxing & not a few scratches
( he chose a Hawthorne for his 1st attempt!) to get him back.


So we filled with diesel, you can self declare at Lower Park Marina :) got a gas refill & set off with a friendly (I think!) wave from Phil & Chris...

not long before you cross the border, a 1st for Poppy - being out of Yorkshire...

passing Kennet, looked after by The Leeds & Liverpool Canal Society

exiting the Foulridge tunnel, another 1st, we are no longer tunnel 'virgins' !

no sign of the Doctor......

finally we moored up on the visitor moorings, (note, not shown in Nicholson's guide but very much here) we are still on the summit & have extensive views of the urban areas of Nelson & Burnley that we shall be travelling through as we descend, quite a change after the rural Dales & Pennines. We may move on tomorrow or we may just stay the full 48hours......
