Sowerby Bridge to Hebden Bridge

We had originally booked our passage onto the Rochdale Canal for 8.30 Monday morning, our friend Dave arrived today to help us all week, as he arrived quite early and it wasn’t too busy the lock keeper let us through . We thought Bath lock was the deepest at 19 ft, but Tuel Lane lock is the deepest at 20 ft, but this one is manned and we did the Bath lock ourselves. We completed 7 locks today to get us to Hebden Bridge, only another 85 locks to go.
