These are the moorings beside the museum gardens in York. The towpath is flooded, hidden below about a metre and a half’s rise in the water level.
I had some difficulty getting back on board, had to borrow another boat’s gang plank.
I’d slackened off the mooring ropes last night, and fortunately another boater (thanks Narrowboat Olympus) had slackened them even further. Drove the boat to a safer spot, and the water seems to be receding. But I’ll be watching out tonight in case the water level suddenly drops, or more rain brings even worse flooding.
York’s had it much worse than this of course.
