As all I seem to be doing is going into locks I thought I’d offer some information. For some locks you get handed a remote control which sets off the setting of the lock when pointed at the sensor.
When you get inside the lock you have to push the blue rod upwards which can prove very difficult!
The red rod is for emergencies and will stop the operations.
Yesterday all the locks were operated by sensors on the riverbank so no remote control needed and today I had to twist a long pole hanging down from over the canal.
We have moored up for the night and the position couldn’t be more perfect.
Plus there’s plenty of space for the dogs to run about.
The sun is out so there’s a strong possibility of a barbecue occurring later!
