I feed off many other canal blogs so I am going to do my bit - it won't be much, and not all canal related, but in the true spirit of blogging.......

Coming to a weed hatch near you
The colder weather and the high winds plus the time of year are depositing a large amount of leaves into the cut.
A couple of years ago I took Waterlily out with a couple of friends and we got stuck in Woodend lock. This lock collects all the leaves that fall from the trees in the long pound from Kings Bromley marina and beyond. We had to bow haul the boat out of the lock as no amount of reverse/forward delivered any propulsion.
I still envy you out there in this lovely autumnal weather.
