Narrowboat in Woodseaves Cutting near Market Drayton, Shropshire
Narrowboat in Woodseaves Cutting near Market Drayton, Shropshire
Shropshire Union Canal. This is a telephoto assisted image showing narrowboat "Periwinkle" making slow progress south-eastwards through the tree enshrouded cutting, and approaching Holling's Bridge (about 120 metres behind the camera). 2 mph speed limit signs used to be shown at each end, but the canal is so shallow in many places, boat speed often barely reaches that. In some places two boats cannot pass each other.
