Oh, the memories ! How long has the fence been there ? I remember falling into the canal when I was running by there, as a kid, and tripped....no fence then.

Lovely peaceful photo.

I wonder if this was a view my grandparents may have seen. I found out they lived at Gathurst, up the road from the station & canal, back in the early 1900's
