Return to the Thames

We decided to finish our time on the Lee and Stort by going in one day from Enfield to Limehouse Basin. Above Enfield is wonderful, below a drudge. So we set off very early due to the forecast temperatures and were going great until the very last lock before Limehouse. We were informed by BW that the navigation was closed due to a fire!


We had to retrace our steps to the Hertford Union cut, climb three locks to the junction with the Regents Canal and drop down four locks to the basin, all instead of ONE lock!


We stayed two nights in the basin, taking time to explore a little of Canary Wharf.


Now we are moored outside Minima Yacht Club, ready for tonight’s sailing and bar night. Tomorrow we go home to do the washing etc.
