The river here is lovely - lots of trees and reeds. Also a few narrow sections.

Found a fallen willow that looked like it completely covered the river.
Upon closer inspection, I did find a little gap to get through.
Further upstream the river meanders a bit and there are a few gravel banks.
Stopped for a quick can of Guinness (as you do) and enjoyed the evening sun.
This swan's got some neck...
The last trip loaded was Melbourne to Cottingwith Lock via the Pocklington Canal, by Alan Brannon on 2nd December 2007.
