We really love this mooring in Sprotbrough, a few miles from Doncaster. The village is hidden behind woodland, so whilst it’s quiet and secluded, there’s shops nearby. The Boat Inn on the opposite side of the River Don is handy for a coffee and pub meal.
This view of our boat was taken from the garden of the toll house. which was open today for a small art exhibition.
Moored near Sprotbrough Lock is a trip boat, which picks up parties opposite the visitor mooring, but thankfully only plays loud 80s music for a short while before heading upstream.
It’s rained most of the day, so we didn’t go out for the long walk we’d hoped for. The rain, falling straight and fast, made bubbles on the surface of the River Don.
Only complaint: once again this mooring turns out to be for 48 hours only. Down South there are plenty of two week moorings, but so far in West and South Yorkshire we’re finding those few and far between.
