The Pig Place

We are moored above Nells bridge lock, opposite the small campsite/smallholding/farm shop called “The Pig Place”.

The forecast for today was for rain this afternoon, so we set off at around our usual time (7:05), but actually the rain didn’t materialise. There were quite a few boats around, but no delays until we got to Somerton deep lock. There was an obstruction under the bottom gate, meaning that the lock wouldn’t fill to level because of the leakage. A CaRT guy was in attendance but it needed 3 or 4 people to force open the top gate each time. We were in a queue of five boats and it took just over an hour to get through, but we had a good chat to the couple on the boat in front.
