Winding at Whaley Bridge
Winding at Whaley Bridge
Turning a 70ft narrow boat in a confined space is an interesting manoeuvre. The little pocket in the bank allows the boat's stem to be held in place while the stern is moved round. The traditional term is 'winding', which rhymes with 'the wind' not 'the winding road'.
