Time and toil
If those stones could speak. Like this a lot Ron.
I have to ask......why is the bottom step worn out more than the others? Is it something to do with the opening and shutting of the lock when it comes to that position?? (I know nothing about locks - I bet Prunella Scales would know -she does all the hard work! Sorry if it is a daft question.
They wouldnt be speaking Neil they would be talking
Sorry Ron not alot to be said, only that the steps and perimeter could do with re-whitening!
Mick..have you any more stupid comments up your sleeve.
They might even punctuate correctly Mick.
Good memories photo Ron, Withington lane Bridge.
Good answer Neil.!!!!!!!
Those stones could even be whispering. I'm sure they would be reluctant to divulge their secrets of the many who have conversed here!
Intriguing question Vb rather than daft, it has nothing to do with the operation of the lock. One would think that all the steps would have suffered the same amount of wear. One or two explanations would be that the other 3 have been replaced, much more convenient to replace those than the bottom one, softer stone on the bottom one, but i cant see that would be the case. Also the wear on the bottom step doesn't look natural to me, it look to have been damaged or hacked at with something.
Well said, Neil.
Thanks Roy ....don't suppose we will ever know. If those stones did speak it must have been the bottom one that did all the talking!
Neil Ive had my fair share of punctuations when Im riding my bike along that stretch of the canal bank.
Good riposte Mick.
When it rains;You get a lot more dampness lingering on the bottom step.Or you have got long legged boat man.
Think you have solved the mystery Fred -you must have a scientific mind if that's the right word or perhaps practical.
