Trip to Allington Lock, Maidstone

Hi folks,

at the beginning of the week Sue and I took a trip to Maidstone and a look around the lock before having lunch in the Malta Inn. It was another lovely day to be by the river.

Lock keepers hut.

Lock Keepers Cottage getting ready for Halloween, smashing decorations.

Canada Goose in the sun.

Looking over the Weir at a very angry river.

Looking up river towards Teston, water everwhere.

Few more to follow, thanks for looking.

Best regards, Mike

      Yep slowly on the mend, takes ages to get about. Have been told it takes 14 weeks so should be ok for Christmas. XXX
