Canal Cottage.

No-one knew that hiding under a thick covering of ivy there stood this desirable little red brick cottage. Now at last all has been revealed and there is something to photograph. It stands next to The Stop House at Braunston and was recently purchased at auction along with outbuildings and a substantial piece of land. There must be some history to it as it could have originally been a stable or suchlike. One side of it overlooks the towpath, while the other faces the driveway towards the main road. Anyway we shall look forward to seeing what it’s new owner has in mind for it when we pass by next time.

Newspapers can be useful when you become a do-it-yourself boat painter!

I wonder how much the land and property made. I think BW paid a lot of money for it a few years back before the boat show moved to Crick
