We set off this morning at 8.00am in glorious sunshine. The river level had dropped overnight and was very calm.

We have now joined the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.
Leeds Lock. The start of the Leeds & Liverpool and the end of the Aire & Calder Navigaton.
We have completed 7 miles and 13 locks. And we are now in Rodley.

Two sets of locks were 3 rise lock (see below)
These locks  are manned by BW staff to assist you and preserve water.
Each lock leads into the other, so the top two locks must be full before entering the bottom lock, as the water in the locks above fill the lock below.

We are now going for a well earned pint in one of the pubs
