Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal, Tixall Wide, Staffordshire
A popular place to moor at any time of the year.

"Tixall Wide, at the northern end (of the canal), is an idiosyncratic solution to the local landowner’s condition that his view must not be blighted by a canal. Clifford Thomas, owner of Tixall Hall (now lost) insisted the canal be disguised so instead the line here more resembles a lake than a channel."
