Knottingley A&C Compare #1995

Not sure of the day/date, so perhaps I shouldn't have used this photo.

First the goats took over Llandudno, now sheep have taken over Braunston. I for one welcome our new ovine overlords.

Today 2007. Marne Saone canal which has been renamed Canal entre Champagne Bourgogne. Not much room in the bridgeholes.

After I bought the Arthur, we did a tour of northern waterways in 1971 and moored under one of those shutes, in order to scrape out what particles we could find of coal wedged in its crevices. From the bucketful we gathered we fed the stove with it that evening  - and soon had to flee the bow cabin so intense was the heat thatr esulted. A nuclear meltdown could hardly have produced more energy. We were lucky the stove did not melt. Strong stuff, that Yorkshire coal. Is there any such still around?
