Leeds Armouries to Castleford Moorings.
The first dry start to a day that we have had for some time. So I took the dogs out for an early walk before the area filled with people travelling into their place of work. In front of the Armouries on the concourse is where I gave Poppy a good run with the ball.
We walked over and onto the Aire Bridge to have a look at the river levels. The river was still flowing very fast and still looked to be in flood. However, when I checked the board, it was well into the Amber and so must be falling. So we decided to make a move away from Leeds. The armouries is quite unwelcoming place for boaters with so many restrictions and for a city centre so much mooring space that remains unused. The sanitary station has now been repaired. though the signs still remain (on the now unlocked doors) saying otherwise. I am not sure if the BW pump out point is now fixed.
