A TRIP ALONG THE RIVER DERWENT
This was a small trip on our
Norman 17 " Gold fFsh" .This trip has been reported by Boson &Co. We leave from
our mooring at Sutton upon Derwent and travel as far as the navigation allows to
Stamford Bridge. no problems but you do have to be careful of the trees that
have fallen and create chicanes in several places. There is a lack of wild life
along the way, we have been told that this was because mink were let loose from
a farm. So apart from the cows we did see kingfishers. As our engine isn't fixed
yet we have on loan a 4 hp outboard which pushed us along at about jogging pace.
the trip took 2 hours. The first thing you see at Stamford Bridge is the green
bridge. The next bridge is stone and you need to moor in the cut to the left. Do
not go any further than this bridge as id gets very shallow !!!
Not much in the town but it is very small. a couple of pubs a take away and a shop the sells almost everything.
