A radial gate

After going to a service at Mill Road Baptist Church in Wellingborough this morning, and after lunch, we watered up and moved on to the EA moorings outside the former Rushden and Diamonds Football Club in Irthlingborough.

We encountered our first radial gate at Ditchford Lock.

There was no difference in operation; it just had a radial gate in place of the more common guillotine gate.

Top photo: lock empty with radial gate raised; next two photos: in emptying lock with gate raised a little.

There were some very fast craft on Stanwick Lake - this is the best photo I could take while steering.

This evening I cycled back to Northampton (17 miles!) and brought the car here.
