Back when there was plenty of water and the boat was behaving itself. Look closely and you may see L plates. Moose 3 but paintwork needs attention which I know is par for the course.

Sorry for the newbie question, but is this a high well-deck, or a low tug-deck? (Or, perfectly usual and I'm betraying my ignorance?)

Sorry for the late reply but it was described as a semi-traditional stern narrowboat with a nod to traditional tug boats and therefore has a tug style deck at the front. This deck is relatively long and high, nominally designed for storing cargo but for the leisure user it can be used for sitting outside but in British weather that might not be a good thing! Not to everyone's taste, there are compromises, but the design makes it look slightly different. 

As a tug, it does have a towing hook at the rear which may be useful but so far gets in the way with my knots.

Lark in a very unusual place for a narrowboat. @Captain Pegg this is the mark to beat on the Challenge I think! 😀 (only shallow-drafted boats need apply)

I’m guessing that’s the remnants of the loop off the main line near Soho Jn with the recently cleared bridge hole behind.

Just so. Draft is a bit over 2ft in the tunnel, falling to 18" where Lark is stuck. Not too much debris, in particular no sign of anything under where the gate was.

The draft might theoretically work as Vulpes is 2' static draft by design but combined with the narrow channel, square hull and near level trim it might make progress nigh on impossible.
