Out on the Caldon

We went out for a few days before Easter, though wasn’t sure how busy or would be – it is after all the school holidays. We set off from Heritage boats and down to the Harecastle Tunnel. We had a short wait whilst boats were coming through but no queue this side. Once through we carried on up the Caldon canal. Three was a local who’s hobby was to help people through the locks. Unusual.
The canal seems to have gone through some improvements since my last trip here, with some new lock gates and improved tow paths. Indeed as we progressed up the canal we found workmen upgrading the path, so out looks like they will be doing the whole length.
