what you get out of that. (laughter)yeah yeah we start our journey in the northwest of
England on the Leeds and Liverpool canal on the Rufford branch at Tarlatan
we had a passage booked which was done couple of months ago via the CRT (Canal and River Trust) website
we met up with the lock-keeper at the time specified on the website
which was around two hours before high tide we were instructed to meet at the
lock at 11:00 a.m. where we were advised that due to it being a 7 meter high tide
we should exit the lock at high revs to avoid being swept backwards down the
river Douglas on exiting the lock we proceed up the river Douglas we passed
moored boats on the pontoons and keep in central we wind our way towards Asland’s
lamp [Music] we passed the lamp on the
starboard side onto the River Ribble staying within the markers we continue
until we see the green light at the Savick Brook entrance we make a wide
sweep to port and we enter the brook with confirmation from the canal and river
trust workers. We proceed up Savick Brook to a pontoon within the tidal waters here we were instructed to moor until
the tide had sufficiently reduced to allow access under the bridges we wind our way through the brook
passing a golf course [Music] we continued up the brook passing
through some locks until we reach the staircase locks which required us to
reverse into and out into a basin and on to the Lancaster canal [Music]

    Looking forward to seeing another Ribble link crossing. Hopefully it’s not as frightening as it was for Country House Gent. Tarleton is pronounced ‘Tarlton’ as if there was no second ‘e’ 😄

    Wow looks scary, but I suppose if you keep to the rules of the waterways, you should be fine. Looking forward to Saturday ♡

    Eileen and Patrick! I so appreciate your spirit! Your joy and fun are just what the world needs now. Thank you! I also truly enjoyed the map you used and the way you used it. I've not seen other narrowboaters use a computer map, in the same way. Very helpful! Thanks and will see you (from the u.s.) on Sat! Blessings!

    We know the journey was fraught. Look forward to seeing it – in just a few hours actually as it's already been posted (but we're catching up on vlogs in order)
