Sanity on the Northampton Washlands

Sanity on the Northampton Washlands

It was not until mid July that we were able to enter the River Nene, and as before, we passed through Northampton to this mooring on the Washlands for the first night. We were expecting to take about a week to travel down to Peterborough and pass through Stanground Lock onto the Middle Level.

The day after this photo was taken, the second monsoon of the summer began, and we were delayed at Earl's Barton Lock for five days, arriving on the 20th and leaving on the 25th.
