Once down the locks we found a mooring at the bottom and spent sometime gongoozling in the basin in the sunshine. Early the next day we took Oakfield along to Debdale where she was hoisted out, placed on trestles and high pressure washed all around and underneath, then left dangling.

Gordon carefully reversed the tractor and trailer underneath Oakfield and she acquired a set of  wheels and was off slowly and gently up towards the workshop. While all this nerve-racking manoeuvring was going on the Cabin Boy had been off to Enterprise to pick up our hire car from Leicester.
