Neptune’s Staircase.

Throughout the journey, lock keepers ensured that Bluejacket’s passage was eased and away from larger vessels. Corpach Sea Lock was negotiated efficiently. Great care was taken when approaching Neptune’s Staircase with its long system of locks. Tom coxed Barry, Diana, Vicky and Peter through the first gate. Then Barry and Peter hauled Bluejacket from the towpath with Kate, Veronica and Alan providing support. The coffee and sandwiches were welcome!
