The final lock today is Orton Lock. Here the first signs of the city are evident. there is a golf course on one side and Peterborough Yacht Club moor on the South Bank. There's a lot of boats here, all tied up and no one about. The Nene Valley Railway terminates here aswell. Onward and still quite rural, there's no sign of Peterboroughs river heritage until we get to the railway bridges.
