Surprising to see the canal full of water at this point.

Reminiscent of an Impressionist painting -could be somewhere in the Dordogne!!!!

I really like this photo, probably the best canal shot for a long time.

I grew up in Ince and we always called it The Rabbit Rocks; I imagine the name varied from district to district.
