This video is our journey from Naburn to York via the River Ouse.
Today we travelled from our mooring at Naburn Lock up the non tidal River Ouse to the lovely York City. This is a lovely wide river with a mix of urban and rural scenery. Not too busy at this time of the year but can imagine in the summer months it could get busy as there are a couple of marinas and lots of private moorings with both narrow boats and cruisers. It was a lovely day if a bit on the chilly side.
At York we moored up next to the museum gardens on dedicated 48 hour moorings. Since we had heard a few tales about boats being untied we put a padlocked strap on the boat and were keen not to be there over the weekend, so the intention was to leave on Friday.
York is lovely Roman city with an ancient wall surrounding it. With a mix of modern and ancient The Shambles is a medieval shopping street in the city where most of the buildings date from 1350 and 1475, and a busy high street with all the usual corporate names and lots of little individual shops.
It has an Abbey and a Cathedral both worth a visit and of course the National Railway Museum that even if you are not into trains is worth a trip too for its railway history and its free..
