We needed to be at the bottom of the Frankton locks by mid day for our passage back up on to The Llangollen canal. We pulled ropes through rings at 08.55 and then went to the end of the canal to wind (turn) before heading back on to the service point at Maesbury. Being fairly new and with not a lot of use these are some of the best services anywhere on the system.
We arrived at the bottom of Frankton locks at 11.30 and had two boats in front of us waiting to go up . Both the top and bottom locks on this flight are padlocked and can only be used by a Lock Keeper.
