Entering Tyrley Bottom Lock near Market Drayton in Shropshire
Entering Tyrley Bottom Lock near Market Drayton in Shropshire
A fierce overflow current cascading from a culvert on the right makes steering into the bottom lock of the Tyrley flight "challenging". The boat ahead was swept towards the rock face on the left. When this happens, don't stop your forward motion, or the boat will be grounded firmly against the bank. Just keep moving at a slow-medium throttle and let the vessel bump its way into the chamber, as this crew successfully did.
