We seem to have been lucky with the weather, sure we have had a few days of rain but we seem to have missed out on the worst of it. But this morning the sun is starting to break through and it promises to be a stunning day. We will be going down the lovely flight of locks at Bank Newton and then through the pretty dales village of Gargrave before passing along the stunning Aire Valley, another amazing day on the glorious Leeds Liverpool. We are moored next to a couple who have spent 37 years on the waterways and have spent the last 16 solely on the Leeds Liverpool as they think it so lovely.
