A personal blog by Ackworth born Gerald England who married a Lancashire lass, went West and now lives in Cheshire.
I have always been fascinated by the British canals, and when it can be combined with both ABC and interesting info - great post!
I wonder if there are still those narrow river boats now used as holiday boats. They are fascinating. Thanks for the information. And your comment on awards. They are the same as chain letters. I got several times the same award. I always felt guilty when I didn't pass them on.
Well you know why I love 'em me being a Brummmie lass. I just find resting my eyes on the waterways so relaxing.
I especially like the top picture.Well done.
I remember when we were young in Taiwan. The best material for man's suite was English wool. People had to smuggle in from Hong Kong. Well, seems the factory is still working, and the English wool probably is still the best material for man's suit. Thanks for sharing.
Lovely pictures. The canal looks great. Is it used regularly?
I like canals too, that first photo is very striking.
Lot of A's in this post :)Anyway, its always nice to see short articles about interesting places with good photos sitting next to them. My A was about fell in Lapland.
Aye, I would have thought the 1st pic was from Albany, NY; the bldg looked familiar.
I never realized the UK had so many canals. Thanks for an interesting post!
