Hay move that bale!
 Hay move that bale!   by Edward Collins  (Canon DIGITAL IXUS 950 IS)
Hay move that bale in the way of a boat on the Leeds & Liverpool canal.

Nice photo. But, hey, I bet that hay bale is straw.


Comment by alan on 5th October 2012 at 00:07
....and where are their lifejackets ?


Comment by Derek Platt on 5th October 2012 at 01:17
At least they don't have to bail out.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 5th October 2012 at 01:58
Now how did that bale get in the canal I wonder!!!! Lovely picture Edward, lazy summer day but what a shame they seemed to have come to the end of their journey!!! Paddlling about on boats. Cheers

Hello Edward, nice light and shade and looks a fine warm day - when and where is this?
No doubt Mick and several other commenters on P-a-D will know the location on the L & L.


Comment by Mick on 5th October 2012 at 08:01
What happened next did they push it out of the way with the boat.


Comment by Ron D on 5th October 2012 at 08:21
Nice lighting


Comment by peterp on 5th October 2012 at 08:27
Bales of hay/straw put in by council to soak up floodwater(haha).Did it fall or was it pushed?


Comment by Mick on 5th October 2012 at 09:06
Ernest the bridge looks like Bridge 67 Waterhouse Bridge.

Comment by Jod on 5th October 2012 at 09:08
Just for you, Ernest, it's called Waterhouse Bridge, number 67, and it's on the stretch between Arley and Adlington.


Comment by maggie on 5th October 2012 at 11:26
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?


Comment by Loz on 5th October 2012 at 12:38
That bale has been in there for a while, after rolling in from the adjacent field.


Comment by big al on 5th October 2012 at 13:23

Comment by Ernest Pyke on 5th October 2012 at 16:01
Thanks Mick and Jod, you were only two mins.between comments! so won`t have seen each others.


Comment by sanibelfred on 9th October 2012 at 16:19
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!'.
