The Big One (6-7)

Saturday 12th May 2012.
Bardney Lock Visitor Moorings.

The wind has moderated, bright sunshine, but we still have the cold wind. That sums up today's weather report. We will not be moving on for a few days and we plan to do a bit of wandering around the place.

Bardney Lock No2
Visitor Moorings
BW Electric Points

We are moored up on the Bardney Lock No2 Visitor Moorings and taking advantage of the BW Electrical power points that are available.

Up stream approach to
Bardney Lock.
 The river is quite wide at this point. The sanitary station is clean and well maintained.

Bardney Lock and the lock keepers cottage.

Wildlife: A pair of Arctic Tern, a group of seven Shelduck and a couple of Yellowhammer were the birds of note on our walks with the dogs.

Down Stream of Bardney Lock.
Old River Witham course to the right.
Navigable for about a mile. There is a winding point.
We had a walk along the old river course towards Short Ferry. Our Nicholson Guide shows a Marina.
