Love your picture Sarah, thank you.

60+ years ago, I would be 8 or 9,my brother would be 6 or 7 and we would leave home in Downall Green about 6 in the morning and walk to Scotsmans Flash so he could go fishing on the banking between the Flash and the Canal....... Back then the Canal was still being used to ship goods and Bargemen always would shout Hello and wave to us... I have lovely memories of those days...

Forgot to say Thank you to Sarah for the lovely pic...

Great photo, I have walked that stretch many times, the memories that are stirred up are fantastic.


Comment by Maureen on 30th May 2015 at 07:51
A lovely peaceful scene Sarah..very nice.

Lovely photo, Sarah.

I used to fish in the flashes and across that bridge to the Blackwaters when I was a kid in the fifties and sixties.

I must go down to the cut again
To the lonely cut and sky
And all I ask is a narrow boat
And a star to steer her by
Apologies to John Masefield
Great pic Sarah ;-)

Can anyone tell me why its always Leeds Liverpool canal? Is it alphabetically?
Footnote:
Before 1965 FA Cup final between Leeds & Liverpool, no team with initial "L" had ever won it!


Comment by A.W. on 30th May 2015 at 10:37
I would love a walk along there.


Comment by maggie. on 30th May 2015 at 11:29
it is just as good to sail a narrow boat along here. We have done it twice - each way. It was so wonderful to sail through the entire area.I found the saddest thing was that we were advised not to moor overnight at Wigan Pier, it wasn't secure. Thank you so much for these lovely pictures.


Comment by Garry on 30th May 2015 at 12:18
Well just do it..AW.
nice shot Sarah

Gio Not sure if hard spat, wave thrashed wind driven true sea men would agree with your extract of Masefield but , saying that ,in the context of Sarah,s picture , I am sure even he would be not offended. I enjoyed it anyays Gio.
