The Rescue - a moorhen chick had got onto it's back in the water (little leggies up in the air flapping!). We managed to collect it in a bucket, turn it over, and release it back to its mother.
These (ex-)working boats are running "breasted-up". This is only possible on a wide canal. Whilst working boats were once a common sight, they are now a rarity.
This building at the top of the Hanwell flight, was originally the County Asylum. It is now the Ealing Hospital. The 3rd picture shows where the old Asylum Wharf entrance once was - now bricked up.
Boat, moored in Paddington Basin, named in memory of Brunel (Paddington being on the GWR)
Moored at Cumberland Basin
Several pieces of artwork have been created using rubbish from the canal
Cassiobury Park was once owned by the Earls of Essex, and Grove Park by the Earls of Clarendon. Several decorative bridges were built to placate the landowners. The whole area is a "Stubb's" landscape. (see also next photo)
The bridge was renovated in 1987 - this plaque marks the event. (see also previous photo)
