Pirates Castle Regents Canal

Pirates Castle Regents Canal

The canal system offers rare insights into our social and industrial as well as having some surprising contacts with the modern age. One is normally travelling through a wildlife haven, be it a narrow corridor or a wide expanse of the watery nature reserve.

I have been on the boat for about half of April and seen many sights from ultra modern canal equipment to the ancient aquaducts dug for London, egrets to black caps, huge locks to the end of navigation. Then there has been the people, from friendly visitors to stone throwing youths, from life long live-aboarders to the anthropologist studying them. One final note I can confirm that the water was not too cold, but the quayside was ruddy hard.

So where to start? I’ll update some of my pages
