What a wash out Bertha has been – or at least where we are. We were all ready for the deluge but all had was a few inches of rain and a couple of thunderstorms. Richard asked me this morning if I had slept well and I replied that the storm had kept me awake all night. Very surprised, he replied “what storm” – “exactly” I said!

All the locks on the Lee Navigation have a large hook at the bottom end – some have two. I can’t find anything about them but we reckon that a barge entering the lock to go up would have thrown a large rope over the hook to steady it – the rope would then have slipped off as the boat got higher and safer.
