Some of the best views were as we looked back. This is as we left Hebden Bridge.
Three hours after leaving Hebden Bridge we arrived at the lock landing for Tuel Lane Lock. We could go no further as passage down the lock and through the tunnel (another bendy one) has to be booked. I'd booked this morning, so we're in the 0900 slot. We should be down straight away as the lock is full and there is just one other narrowboat on the lock landing.
The Calder runs through Sowerby Bridge; a kayaking slalom course has been set up.
After an excellent meal in the Wetherspoon's pub (the Commercial Inn) (Tuesday steak night) we returned to Jubilee where boaters Les and Ursula of Clemency joined us for a drink. They are moored below the locks; their daughter was in our son's class in the village First School.
You can't see is directly in the photo, but I had lit the fire (the first time since reblacking it). It is August, after all. The giveaway is the blurred blade of the ecofan.
David and Penny should be joining us tomorrow afternoon; it will be good to see them.
