Power station

Torksey Church 1

Torksey Church 2

Awake at 5am and ready to leave when the Lock Keeper came knocking on the door at 6am!! Out of the lock at 6.30 and had a good ride upriver with the tide. 29 miles in 3 1/2 hours. The tide was just about to turn when we reached our destination.

Not much of interest on the river so took a pic of the power station!!

Once we had visited the lock keeper to announce our arrival and arrange for passage through the lock tomorrow, we went for a walk into the "village" - what was once a huge place the size of Nottingham in the time of the Romans is now a very small village.

The Fossdyke which runs from Torksey to Lincoln was cut in about 120AD in the time of the Emporer Hadrian and was deepened by Henry I in 1121 AD.

Of course we had to have a wander around the graveyard of the little church.

But that was all there was of interest.

Now it's just about time for a nana nap.
