Another good photograph Mick. You've captured atmosphere and presence, I can almost smell the smoke. Great shot!

Well captured, Mick - a bit of history recreated.

I don't think that is an ordinary narrow boat, it looks to me like a barge - meant to carry freight. happy memories though of locking. One of my happiest memories is of working the Wigan flight on a summer Sunday afternoon. Great, met some lovely people.
