First ever lock....

Sarah from NB Warrior blogs about her first lock.

Ours was ......

.........Marbury lock No10 on the Llangollen.

We took a mid week hire on an Alvechurch boat, Nutcracker 45ft cruiser stern. I recall the family had their first lock instructions, and the lads totally ignored them and mucked about as they do at that age..14 and 11.

This is a favourite picture from the holiday

It is 1927 days from that first day we ventured onto the canal (used this tool)
Or 5 years, 3 months, 9 days including the end date
Alternative time units1927 days can be converted to one of these units:
166,492,800 seconds
2,774,880 minutes
46,248 hours
275 weeks (rounded down)
On reflection that is a short amount of time when I consider the quality time we have enjoyed on the canals.
