I wonder how many Incers have crawled up the lock over flow tunnel

I love to see these colourful pics of canals & narrow boats. It pleases me that canals are are again full of life.
Thanks Ron.

Have to agree with you Helen of T. It looks lovely now.
Back in the 60s it was a mess - I remember a fishing match with twenty two men and only one fish was caught. Excellent shot Ron.

This flight is a good one. Well maintained, & the original design is well planned. it is one of the best canals in this country.
