Just for you, Ernest, it's called Waterhouse Bridge, number 67, and it's on the stretch between Arley and Adlington.

We never wore life jsckets when we were boating. They should have had someone at the front with one of the poles to move the bale, as it is they look close to the side of the bridge. How did they manage it?

That bale has been in there for a while, after rolling in from the adjacent field.

Not that I would boast,much,but in sept. I walked from Top Lock to Wigan Pier at age 87, with 2 bad knees. I passed two narrow boats tied together, on their way to OXFORD,taking 3 weeks to do so.

For the worry-worts among us, the standard safety instructions given to folks new to the canals includes what to do if you fall overboard: 'Stand up!'.
