Beside the Canal

Audlem Festival of Transport, based on the Shropshire Union Canal and its flight of 15 locks – forty or more boats and, on the Sunday, a gathering of “historic road vehicles”. The latter seemed mostly to be cars, and many didn’t appear to be very old (which probably says more about me than the vehicles). I’m sure their owners loved them anyway. There were one or two other items of interest – a couple of nice old half-cab double-decker buses, and a traction engine ticking over quietly. The canal towpath was the place to be – lots of colour, lots of boats (traffic jams…). Great fun!
