Canal maintenance?

I suspect this isn't being used for canal maintenance. On the towpath along the Tame Valley Canal.

Return to the Paddington Arm

I like Little Venice in London and returned there again on Saturday during my brief visit to the big city. I had a walk up the Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal up as far as Paddington Station and took a few photos. The area seems to be great for British Waterways boats, below is John Marks which appears to have solar powered backup (not that it can be that useful at the moment!)

What Stratford-upon-Avon again?

Today i went to Stratford-upon-Avon (again). Yes i do go there a lot. This time i went just to relax though because usually these days when i go to Stratford its because i am looking up some items in the archive there for my masters degree. Anyway i took some photos today, much quieter than in the Summer of course and everything is winding down for the Winter.

The Rhine!

I was rooting through some old photographs the other day and came across a pile of photos i took in the late 80s during a couple of trips to the Rhineland. Some of the photos are very nice indeed especially of the castles that are on the banks of the mighty river. The photos have been scanned and you can see my photos from Germany here.
