There's something about lock gates that brings back happy memories from long ago.

Love this picture Dennis.
I was brought up very near the canal & spent many a happy hour there.
I was shown by an outsider years after I had left Ince that if you look at the bottom of the arches on the canal bridges you can see grooves in the stone made by the ropes of the horses that pulled the early barges.
