Today in 2017 lots of weed on the Burgundy canal south of Dijon. The weed cutter is kaput above the lock. Some of the lock keepers scoop great piles of the stuff out whilst waiting for boats but others only move it when it stops the gates opening.

Being French, they'll have recipes for it.

Loading coal at Gopsall Wharf, Moira Canal June 1975, Stamford, Towcester and Bude. I changed the colours to slightly more patriotic red and blue with off-white lining in jubilee year 1977.

A sign that it was once easy to fail to see, and end up aground ...

Today 2017 this monster was reversing onto its moorings at St Jean de Losne. After they arrived a few of the passengers had a walk round but not much money was spent locally. In the morning a fleet of coaches arrived to take them off and trucks from Switzerland came to restock it.
