…we see the canal that divides Shugborough from the village of  Great Haywood.

A surprise

    I love canals and the low bridges you often have to duck under when walking the tow path, such a relaxing place. These boats are so attractive too.

    Fun. We have really enjoyed days out on a friends barge. So peaceful chugging along the canals.

    Very nice, CP. Our canals have undergone welcome environmental improvements and cleansing, since my boyhood days. The ubiquitous ‘polio – no bathing’ signs was a method to guarantee voluntary immersion of rebellious juveniles and unintended acquisition of immunity to all pathogens on the planet.

  4. I’d love to have a canal boat holiday!

    I was able to see how ‘your’ locks work. Chris took us into Bath and it was just amazing. Different from our system. Your canals are so narrow, I know, that is why the narrow boats come in :)
    Wonderful set of pictures again.

      The locks are fascinating. The one and only time I went on a canal holiday I learned the order of placing the boats in the locks…

      By going first we managed to flood the long boat that was behind us. Ooops!

      They were very good about it, but we felt awful.
