Good photo Harold
The smoke makes it more authentic

if you can, you always travel through flights of locks in tandem, it's much easier all round. We did the Wigan flight on our own, hard work, but I met a lovely old man who chatted with me as I worked the locks, but he was quite upset that I no longer speak with a Wigan accent.

I like the name Billy Whizz. Good photo. We've never done the Wigan flight - too old for the journey on our own I think !!! We are moored in LEIGH and tend to go the other way - through Manchester.
