...not as long as you'd think, less than ten minutes mostly. We did a flight of 24 locks in a row last year in 3 1/2 hours. When it's busy, you spend more time in the queue waiting your turn.

No change Paul .. don't make assumptions from antipodean seafarers posts.. :D :D :D

Being serious I would guess 13 days doesn't include stop overs. 👍

That's our actual travelling time Paul, if were in a car we could set off the morning of August 1st. but travelling by narrowboat takes somewhat more time and planning!
