Just under half a mile. And very nice it is, too!

0.462 miles from the slip, it's normally longer on the way back though....

Hi Used to be a very dangerous pub, the clock never gave the right time You can take the wrong way, When you leave the mooring go up to the lane and turn right (boat dyke road) at the next  T junction turn/bare left still boat dyke at next junction turn?bare right at next junction turn left pub in front of you.Smashing pub go early so you can stay longer,delightfull stroll from mooring BUT take's longer to get back,at least it does me.John
