An early start to descend the five locks down to the city.

Very early and three point three degreees

Leaving Darlington Wharf
Passing through Sydney Gardens

Thank you to Volunteer Lock keepers Colin and Paul who helped us through the five locks

The very deep lock – quite scary

Moored at Bath Quays

Wandered along the towpath to Sainsburys and guess what we saw


The excellent market at Green Park former station. Bought fresh veg, steaks and duck eggs to poach!

Lansdown Crescent

In the afternoon we walked across Victoria Park and up and up to Lansdown Crescent. To us far more attractive than The Crescent and far fewer tourists as you can see. The green actually had several sheep grazing! Then we walked down to The Crescent and on to The Circus which I particularly like.

Look what one of its’ residents invented. It should amuse you

And finally -other towns take note
