When you consider how canals used to look years ago - it's nothing short of a miracle to see the transformation!

re the man on a bike coming.There's lots of bikes use the towpath and not a bell between them.

Cullie... 7th December 1941 the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour. A big difference between such a peaceful scene.

Comment by: Vb on 7th December 2016 at 22:22

Its the 75th anniversary as well.....it was the answer to Winston's prayers!

Scrappy, I think Cullie is referring to the title of the shot, "A Nip in the Air". Nip a shortened form of Nipponese (Japanese), hence the air raid on Pearl Harbour.

Pauline I have a bell, and good manners and always ride with consideration for all users of the towpath (including anglers)H.
