Camera Charged

The fool in charge of the camera - yes, that would be me -charged the device overnight and captured some pictures of the historic inland port of Shardlow as we set off Thursday morning.Above and below, the 18th century Clock Warehouse restored in 1979 and now a Pub.
Lockgate Stoves are based in this old warehouse above.
The Malt Shovel pub, built in 1799.
The Malt Shovel with an 18th century warehouse attached. On the opposite bank of the canal was, until fairly recently, a large independent brewery of the same era, now sadly demolished and replaced with housing.

Here Caxton is heading out of Shardlow after watering - Matilda Rose is still on the waterpoint in the background.

And, here the lock is prepared for our departure.

Suggestion have 2 batteries for your camera ; with 1 always charged.

You want to practice fishing your windlass out of the lock entrance? (I assume you have a magnet?)
Naughty, naughty! ;-)

Hi Big J
As i posted that photograph I just knew that I would have my backside slapped for where the windlass was placed. Ouch!

I think a second battery is a good idea - I will track one down.
