Great Ouse - first impressions
So here we are on the Great Ouse on Silt Fen Farm moorings; by Denver Sluice and the very impressive flood relief channel which runs down past Downham Market. This is a lovely peaceful mooring in open countryside with magnificent sunsets in the big open skies.
There is work going on on the opposite bank to increase the flood defenses, but they're not disturbing us and the parked vehicles look rather romantic against the setting sun.
Rather than shift the boats, Lesley and I walked the dogs in to Downham Market . Plenty of opportunity for the dogs to swim as you walk in along the relief channel which turns off, through a lock. just after the sluice.
