Nice one, Gerry.

There is actually a photo on here somewhere showing the bridge with a train crossing it, the photo is taken from the other side of the canal.

None needed Gerry. I do like the then-and-nows. It is fascinating to see the comparison and there must be a lot of folk traipsing up and down the locks, and elsewhere for that matter, who don't share our memories of the olden days. It must be a help to see these images in juxtaposition. It could be a category.
You've posted some good pics lately.

Great piece of work Gerry. I think the comment about a "new" category is spot on especially if they are as well done as this.

Thank You for the kind words Tom... if you fancy being a double act we have really original names

we used to swim in this section of the canal as children we called it the sandy bottoms as there was a section of bank wich was sandy i remember jumping off the bridge into the canal but i couldn,t follow my mate who walked up the arch of the bridge and jumped off that was scarey
