A canal accident
A canal accident
This is the maintenance boat for the Grand Western Canal. A notice on the towpath explains that the boat sank following an accident while contractors were carrying out tree surgery on the canal (Note the logs on the left of the towpath). Parts of the boat had been salvaged, and it was planned to recover the boat the day after this picture was taken.
