On Lock Duty

The Boatman was on his own so was nudging the lock gate open, so some of our walking group lent a hand.

Excellent! I love the inclusion of the dog..
Martin from Stone: He was from the boat and was out on the rounds looking for treats from our coffee stop

A welcome bit of muscle, Martin
Martin from Stone: The mechanics of locks always amaze
I hope you didn't knock the dog into the canal
Martin from Stone: It was off the boat so though over weight it appeared quite savvy

That is nice of them.The operation of the lock holds my attention.
Martin from Stone: Always interesting to watch
I'm sure he was appreciative for the extra muscle power, Martin.
Martin from Stone: Usually there are two on a narrow boat but he was alone with this overweight dog
I suspect it's harder than it looks to open/close these gates.
Martin from Stone: If the levels are equal I think it is not too bad once inertia is overcome
I have two lock gates and a bridge that opens to boats right next door, but fortunately they are all motor driven. I have to time my shopping by the tides!
Martin from Stone: Well there's a thing Frank, - always keep a spare loo roll in stock just in case!!
