Work at Dolkholm lock is porogressing slowly. Well it is only day 2 of the stoppage after all. The pans and crane barge are above the lock with only one more barge to be brought up. Having chatted to one of the guys about what is to be carried out, it appears it's not just the lower and upper gates being replaced. Walls are to be repointed and the lock floor inspected for leaks etc. Hopefully I can get back next week to see how much has been done.

|Loaded with everything bar the gates, it seems.|
As I was about to post this I noticed an orange glow in the sky. Took this photo across the basin first before realising the glow was even more spectacular in the other direction. Sign of good weather to come perhaps?
