End of navigation ?

Moved on to Bedford to try and get to the 'end of navigation' on the river.

Low bridge at lock

This stopped us getting to the 'official' end of navigation.

But after squeezing under several very low bridges we turned round at the last lock in Bedford and stayed a night in the Marina. Free for GOBA members. One day it is planed to 'cut' a new canal to link Bedford and Milton Keynes. Would have been useful to go that way to join the Grand Union canal. But we will have to turn here and 'explore', on our way back, the rivers Ouse and Nene.

Low bridge in Bedford

Had to remove items off the roof to get under this.
