This is JACOB, who was walking the canal with his Mum and family and somehow got roped into being a member of the Caxton crew - a future boater/lock wheeler who helped me with three locks. I could have press ganged him but his Mum didn't seem inclined to let him go.... Thanks Jacob!
Moored up at Wrenbury after a marathon day.
A welcome pint and a packet of pork scratchings for the dogs after all that walking/locking.
