Elkington’s lock

We are on our way the the Cutweb rally at Long Itchington. As we wanted to wash the side of the boat (covered in spider’s web!) we went just outside the marine and up one lock. The water level was quite low when we moored up, but after we have done the washing and had our meal I noticed that the level had dropped much further, about 15 in lower than when we arrived. I walked down to the lock to see if someone had left a paddle up, but no. It was nearly dark now, but we decided to move up the next lock rather than risk being stuck on the bottom by the morning.
