That 25 minutes wait yesterday dragged on for another 20 minutes but what a fascinating insight to the job at hand.
A volunteer lockkeeper was on duty, unusual as these locks are manned on weekends only.But because of the stoppage and possible danger to boaters and public, all being in such close proximity to the workings, the decision was taken to keep the volunteers on throughout the week.
A question was asked on how the crane got over to lock 2. It was done by removing bollards, laying heavy duty planking across the lock and driving it over to the other side.
So as previously mentioned in yesterday's post, plenty of photos to show
This was meant to go on yesterday's blog.
|Rocket launched from Leicester National Space station perhaps?
And a few more photos of the Swans
It did get away so rest assured.
