Stoke Prior

A long day today, 35 locks. We came down the Tardibigge and Stoke flights. We got into a pretty good rhythm with the 3 1/2 of us (Nikki was only winding the easy ones and taking a rest every now and then). With one ahead setting the next lock we only had to wait when there was a boat coming up.

Nikki & the ‘bump’

The weatther was good, so a tiring but pleasant day until the evening.

As we were mooring up I managed to damage my hand, removing most of the skin between my thumb and finger, while trying to put the head back on the lump hammer.

We didnt have a suitable sized plaster onboard so had to improvise with some smaller plasters and a piece of towelling.
