Great Score Bridge, Leeds and Liverpool Canal (7-10)

It finally stopped raining so we left our mooring at 0615 (in the dark) this morning and headed out to the country again.

There is something not very nice about the locks along this stretch. They seem very big, a few are quite deep and they are all definitely unloved.

We had a brief stop at Burscough for water (and a quick shop and after a total of 12 miles, 6 locks and 10 swing (3 open) bridges later we moored up on the landing bollards of Great Score Swing Bridge.

"On the landing bollards?" you say. Well, yes. The bridge is permanently open, so we didn't thing we were causing any bother to anyone else.

This card made with handmade paper and lilac flowers was done a few years ago. I don't know whether you can tell the earlier cards from the ones I make now.

I matted a piece of square silver card onto some white card and then onto the handmade paper and tore the edges of the handmade paper. I fixed it to a white card blank and added the flowers with sticky fixers and then the bow with another sticky fixer.
