CANAL WALK

11 comments


This is my second walk with the group, some of the people from the Arboretum walk have not come today, but will be back for next week. My new friend Hazel, whom I met at conversational french course, introduced me to these walks. We meet up at the same centre where the classes take place and, unlike the courses, the walks are free. Not the best of weather, but it stayed dry for us. We walked a short distance from the centre down some streets, down some steps ….et voila!

Those steps on the right are where we came in.

Look what I found … must be the lock keepers cottage and obviously owned by a gardener. I’m sorry I couldn’t show this in its entirety, but couldn’t step back far enough as the water did not look that inviting.

Must leave it behind now and carry on with the walk

We eventually left the canal, up more steps …then fields. I never knew these places existed!


I hope you enjoy these walks, I certainly have, I wonder where we’ll walk next Wednesday?:o)

That's the great thing about walking groups . . . you discover places you never knew existed! Lovely spot Ba, and looks like a good place to see a Kingfisher(?). What a great cottage too :)

Good for you Ba, I did enjoy the walk, it was very much like our canal and Bridle path walks and its lovely that you have walking companions to enjoy it with;0)

That was a lovely walk. I'm glad you showed it. It reminds me of the canal at the bottom of the road where I grew up many years ago :o) I always like to walk along a canal.

You'll have to do a blog of Land-beach Jane, I loved the cottage too:-)

Never saw a kingfisher Sheila, just ducks and moorhen. I should think the cottage would be a bit lonesome at night time, lovely to look at though:-)

I'm sure you're right Ba. Lock-keepers have to like the solitary life I think, as their cottages often seem to be in fairly isolated places.

So there we are then BA improving your health and stimulating the brain cells. Glad your enjoying your walks which look very inviting especially that little cottage.
