Canal and housing near Meaford, Staffordshire
Trent and Mersey Canal.
This is really the northern spread of recent housing from the Stonefield area of Stone. The estate reaches as far as Meaford Bottom Lock. The wide expanse of water in the foreground is part of a newly built winding hole.

Winding Hole
A wind-ing hole (pronounced as in wind = breeze) is a wide section of the canal where narrowboats up to 70 feet (21.3 metres) in length, the maximum accommodated by most locks on the canal system, can be turned round.
