Ah, the peace of the canal. The trees and open countryside beyond.

Lovely view, Ian.

I think, when the lift bridge is down, the only thing to do is stop. When was that installed, i am impressed.

I belive this bridge is a Bascule bridge,it replaced a swing bridge some years ago.Information can be found on Wikepedia.

Don't you mean 'skew wift' Mick? The only bridge i've seen like this goes over the River at Weaverham just outside Warrington.
