The adventures of Gary and Carolyn living aboard and continuously cruising the uk canals and rivers on narrowboat Inca
Saturday, 30 May 2015
Still at Claverton and I was keen to take a look at the water driven pumping station which lifted water from the river Avon and up to the canal. But guess what it was closed. It is closed for all of this year due to a refurbishment taking place which is a bit of a shame.
At least Curly enjoyed a walk down to the river and a look at the weir that fed the pumping station.
A bit disappointed and back to Inca for an afternoon sat in the sun and chilling out with a glass or 3.
Great looking doors on this boat as we pull pins from Claverton and make our way into Bath.
Approaching Bath and we manage to pick up a mooring just before Sydney Gardens. Good job as because as you can imagine like the rest of the Kennet and Avon canal moorings are in very short supply.
With Inca moored we walk down the locks to the river Avon and then up to Pulteney weir.
This is my first time in Bath and its just as I would imagined it to be.
Bath Rugby ground and home to the Bath egg chasers.
After a few hours spent walking around Bath it was then back to Inca and due to a wet foot a complete change of plans are forced onto us....But more about that in the next post.
