Today we made the Thames. But not before doing several more locks and one lift bridge. Now I had read on someone's post (can't remember who) that this lift bridge refused to stay up and they resorted to using the boat pole. I didnt need the pole as I had a much better 'keeper upper' in my 'man that can'.
Reaching Dukes lock FS descended and then I took a right turn towards Dukes cut. One more lock took us onto the cut and a 10 minutes cruise, passing the Kings lock weir and finally we were on the Thames. Here we turned right and headed upstream.

And on the journey.
|Lock by Dukes cut. Nothing to stop the paddles dropping so this hook was used instead.|
