This photograph by David Howdle shows us preparing to ascend from the tidal section of the River Trent in Cromwell Lock.
The bottom gates have just closed and the lock is beginning to fill with fresh water. Jane is in the steering position while
Graham holds the boat steady with one of the centre lines. Friday, 5th June 2009.
