We are now moored up at Hapton Boatyard.
We have found the railway station, so Wendy can catch the 09.38 train to Preston tmorrow, so she can be in London tomorrow afternoon.
The pricing for trains never seem to amaze us. In Skipton, we went to the railway station and tried to book the tickets. They wanted £238 for a return ticket.
We looked online for the same tickets, and found that they were £208. But if you tavelled first class, you could buy the same train time tickets for £153.
We walked into Padiham yesterday. It is the next town about 1 mile away, unlike Burnley, it is clean and very friendly. The bus costs £1.48 and takes about 10 mins. So I may be taking an excursion next week.
I do have a few jobs to do on the boat. As you can imagine, we have gone through over 300 locks
Concrete versus metal. Concrete always wins (see below)
