22nd June 2014
4 miles, 1 lock
Just a quick dirty dart to Peterborough as planned, so we were there in time to collect the hire car booked to take us home at midday. We saw activity of a different kind
Indications all along the river bank that there are often many fishermen, but not many seen in action today
Then past Peterborough Yacht Club, where they make visitors welcome
Through Orton lock where there are moorings to be found below the lock.
Past the Sculpture Park where this Viking Shipwreck (?) could be seen
And then round the corner came nb Chatsworth who had breasted up with us at Islip on 8th June. I wonder how far they got with their explorations of these waterways?
Onto the outskirts of Peterborough
Past the 'Asda Gate'
and lots of moorings
The marooned boat
Past what may well be the only view of Peterborough Cathedral we get as we left as soon as we got the car.
