A new purchase for the butty
3 Sept 2013
You may have wondered where Capt Ahab has gone....
Lock 36 - Rochdale Canal Summit
Well, the answer is that we have gone boating and a full trip report will follow. But for now we are sitting at the summit pound of the Rochdale Canal, heading west towards Manchester having just crossed from Yorkshire to Lancashire.
For those that have never been this way, it really is boating at the top of the world. The moorland comes right down to the canal.
Whilst in Todmorden this morning we purchased a small "Buckby" can - an authentic one complete with is original artwork and a rust hole. Ian and Karen - thanks for the tip off!
The mystery can
Any ideas who painted it and where it may have come from?
