By the canal

This is the Shropshire Union Canal, which runs near to my village. When my Dad was a kid, Cadbury's would have barges carrying raw chocolate along this route. Needless to say, some of the chocolate fell off the boat, accidentally of course, and was gratefully appreciated. Growing up during rationing, this must have felt like manna from heaven.
