which was an incomplete picture of a sign at Sneyd Wharf from yesterday (and 4th May 2003), from where we began our trip to the centre of Birmingham on 5th. This day has a better picture of the sign:

I had wonderered whether the icon is in much demand, or whether once the artist drew it, the signmaker put it on the correct way around: seems more 'choppy' this way, maybe  ??

I took my Common Entrance form here for a trip on Iona about 2001. I recall it was a one-horsepower model. Earlier in the day we'd been to a working watermill. That was one of the bonuses  of teaching, going on interesting trips free and being paid to do so too: it helped make up for the long hours of boarding-house duties.

Major maintenance of the Aqueduc d'Oussy at Montreuillon has now been completed. The largest of three aqueducts on the route, it carries the Rigole de l'Yonne, a feeder to the Canal du Nivernais. 28 kilometres long, it has a tunnel as well and a breathtaking passage through the woods towards the Nivernais summit. A group of us went down it once, aided by a useful current.PICT0839.jpg.b657649eff358f768425bed24bbebdf2.jpg

On this day 2005


Using the Skiff Lock, Teddington


We shared the small lock. Our Trip from Limehouse was already mentioned in #563


We had spent the night of the 2005 General Election in Limehouse Basin, in this newsworthy constituency. Which inspires a rather convoluted cat-link.
