Wendover arm

port of Berkhamsted


big fish












Friday 3/6/11
we left berkhamsted with Dave and Jenny on NB sweet dream and headed for the start of the wendover arm we wanted to see how the Wendover arm trust we doing http://wendoverarmtrust.co.uk/ , we turned into the arm under a footbridge the water level was a little low but OK ,

as we went round a couple of corners we came across a sunken boat

                                                         
and was thinking have we done the right thing ,and the arm was narrow in places then we came to the flour mill and some sharp bends , but once we got to the stop lock




                                                                           


it all changed we went under a very well restored bridge and to a winding hole which at the moment is as far as you can go but there are lots of mooring there and it is very quite the sides of the arm are concrete and the arm here is deep , once we moor up , Dave and myself went for a walk and found were the trust were working and they are doing a lot of work and done a lot and cannot wait to come back once the arm is fully open which i hope will not be long
