Dundas Wharf, Kennet and Avon Canal

All the swing bridges on the western side of the summit have this sign on them.

But someone or some people have stolen all the padlocks!
It does make opening the closing of the bridges so much easier now. No more getting onto hands and knees (on the wet ground) to get a key into a padlock.

The Kennet and Avon canal is a wide canal - except hear when there isn't even room for two narrowboats to pass.

This is the (or will be, hopefully sooner rather than later) the entrance to the Wilts and Berks Canal. It will, one day, go up to Abingdon to join the River Thames.

Nine miles, seven locks, five swing bridges and five hours to get to Bradford-on-Avon.

Now for a completely different canal. One of the Llangollen lift bridges. The photo is matted onto silver, blue and lime green card. The blue mat is scalloped. The lime green mat was cut longer at the bottom and I wrapped a blue and green spotted ribbon around it and tied it in a knot. The base card is blue.
