Drat, our main route out of the Fens is going to be closed for several weeks (see below), meaning that we wen’t be able to spend as much time out on the canals as we’d hoped, unless we can get the go ahead to take the more difficult Hundred Foot route instead. We’ll still get out and do some boating though, and this may mean that we get around to doing the Wissey and Lark properly instead of rushing out of Denver and up the Nene.
Here’s the full notice in case anyone else needs the info:
