Later the lockkeeper arrives and also a dog. This poor creature has wounds and looks like he has escaped from being stuck. The lockkeeper has a new friend as he shared his lunch with him. I also bring him some food. While talking with Trevor I see a kingfisher flying downstream on the Barrow. After locking down we see a second runaway, a Golden Retriever on the towpath.
We drive slowly down the river that has slight current.
We reach the shallow cut to Carriglead Lock, where we moor inside the lock again for a longer break. A WI engineer is measuring the gate beams; they want to cut them soon. So, these photos are now history. Carriglead Lock is the oldest lock on the Navigation with one of the prettiest lockkeeper house. Setting and scenery are great with a view to the top of Mount Brandon.
