Beeston castle

Another 3 miles along and we can see Beeston castle in the distance. It’s managed by English Heritage so we will explore it tomorrow. We have done 6 locks today which was hard work as they are doubles (2 boats can enter at same time). And some of the gates took both of us to open as they were do heavy. Bunbury staircase was the first which we shared. The others we had to ourselves as nothing passed us today. 

 

Tilstone lock.
