Leeds to Allerton Bywater

Awoke to rain this morning, but at least it was calm and for once no wind. Set off ready to see what the Aire and Calder had to offer. Going through five locks, all electrically operated, so Ian had an easy time pressing buttons. The locks on this section were all 185 ft long and I felt lost in the length of them.
