The Triumph Factory,,
Is this perchance the Leicester section of The Grand Union Canal?? If so, is this above Foxton Locks??
Actually, the bit of canal, goes past the Triumph Factory and Tesco distribution centre, I hope this link works..
Very respectable for a phone.
Except the Triumph one which is grim, I wonder why.
Thats easy Brian, I had to reduce the size from 3 meg to 150k!
the only ray of sunlight this morning here in wet Wales
Lovely set of photos ShiftZZ ,just getting better and better .I think they are brill. :thumb::thumb:
Lose anything on your walk then Hilda??Seriously tho nice pics.
Just reading a book ,The Canal Age, by Charles Hadfield published 1968. Your brilliant pictures bring to life the engineering achievements of a past age thanks
Ahhhhhhhhhh....Its the Ashby! Brill moorings at the battlefield site.
I can remember when "Ken " took to walking a dog down the canal towpath every day :Rofl1:
Is that why you want a dog?
Thats a nice walk, Ambion Hill, start at Sutton Wharf, walk through the woods, up to the visitors centre, then to Shenton Station, then along the canal back to Sutton Wharf.
Great place Bosworth, we (Welsh) came, ding dong One - Nil,
Henry VII, great fly half :Wink:
Sort of, also my hearing is rubbish, too many loud sound systems in my younger days. I have distorded ear drums.
Do you walk the canals or bike them? My wife (Lee) and I love biking along the different canals we come across. We biked some of the Grand Union recently - Brentford to Little Venice. Whilst on the canal it's like an oasis of calm and hard to believe its winding its way through an incredibly built up area of London.
I do both, I may cycle to the canal and then walk it, yes, its very quiet, a place to stop and think..
That looks like Llantrisant Forest-or any other forest :Rofl1:
Yourself and shifty have inspired me to get on the bike along the canals and rivers that we are blessed with in this part of the country. I used to do it regularly but have somehow got out of the habit. Armed with my S2 I'll see what I can find next week. :thumb: Must remember my lock just in case I stop at a couple of pubs on the way.
those canals and bridges etc look awesome, cant' wait to get over there and go for a meander.
and the ray of sunlight shot is gold. great work that.
