Leaving Keadby Lock.
The approach to Keadby Lock on the tidal River Trent. Entering the lock can be tricky. It is unwise to aim straight for the entrance due to the strong currents in the river. A controlled approach involves going past the lock, turning and creeping up towards the entrance against the flow of the tide, increasing the power to turn into the lock.
