Holmes Swing Bridge, Leeds and Liverpool Canal

 No trouble with the bridges this time, and some had even been updated and were completely electrified. 

This one had hand push barriers, though you had to put the key in first and couldn't remove the key until the barriers were closed.  I managed to leave the key in.  The crew of the boat behind brought it on to us.  Considering I stopped to take the photo of the conundrum of how to get to the box and the keys can be seen remains to be seen.

As usual, the folk of Maghull were so friendly and welcoming, especially where they are waiting for a bridge to close. 

 We are moored up with two other boats, one has gone on to Bridge 9 and one more is on the other side of the bridge, so there are at least 5 boats going down to Liverpool tomorrow.

 Have been having a run of creative juices lately.  I played around with this "card in a box".

It folds flat to go in an envelope so can be posted easily, but it opens up and sort of "pops out".  Instructions on //www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/popupboxcard/   if youre interested.
