Bank Newton to Inghey Bridge

Another wonderful day, apart from the rain showers. The scenery is unbeatable, our first lock flight of the day was Bank Newton locks, a flight of six, dropping down into the valley of the Aire. Then another flight of six through Gargrave. We stopped for lunch at Gargrave and had a quick walk into the very picturesque village. In the afternoon we completed the last three locks through Gargrave, two swing bridges, then moored in the middle of beautiful countryside.

Will do, thanks. Just wish this wind would drop, it is getting tiring now.
