we were the 4th and last up the flight as he had a queue of boats waiting to come down. So a lucky break during what was the Easter school holiday break. Upon reaching the top we stopped at the service block for water etc and counted 18 boats waiting to go down. A couple talked of being there 3 hours. So for us an easy journey. The lockeeper let 8 down before once again letting boats up.
16C and 17C. This timber framed building is the second oldest in the high street and the most complete medieval building. Never having been inside I took Jaq in and we had coffee on the upper floor. The stout wooden beams i felt could tell a few stories of the past 500 years.

I have been with T-Mobile for a few years and my present contract had run it`s course. My plan had been Web `n` Walk £15($22.5) per month and allowed 3GB. I decided it would be nice to have a wireless router for the Internet and went into the T-Mobile shop to check it out. The so it seemed helpful young lady said I could have the Pointer for £7.50 ($11). All terms and conditions the same so i`m thinking this is a bargain.

I managed to change my plan to 10GB at a cost of £12($18). So at least I now have the wireless unit and a reduction in price. Just be warned if you have the web n walk deal. Just a mention for our U.S. readers the wireless device is free when you have a monthly plan as is a cellphone plus a new phone each time you re-new your contract. Jaq is not sure how it works in the states but does say she paid $55 per month for hi speed broadband so any U.S. comments would be of interest to us here in the UK.
