The Boat Shop stands beside the lock selling milk, confectionary, canal memorabilia. It also runs a book swap where you can take books that you have read for then to sell to raise money for various charities. During the summer months the place is buzzing with walkers and gongoozlers lolling about enjoying their ice-creams here. The area around the bridge has recently had tarmac laid over the previously rubble surface.
I like the improvised flower container and the new lock gates appear to be completely watertight.
Someone is also fed up with irresponsible dog owners too!
