Not the game. The real, actual place.
First a stay at the charming Station Hotel;
Then a quick stroll through a series of concrete tunnels;
Before finally arriving at the coast.
It was certainly day-tripper weather;
The place was full of charming follies & adornments;
The world-famous canal-boats were in fine fettle;
Arranged in all their glory;
I was lucky enough to get a look inside some local homes;
They were full of modern amenities;
The most up-to-date "Mod Cons"
Academic achievements on display;
The phone box was locked, presumably for safety;
People may claim that Bastions Canal District has seen better days..
But as you can clearly observe here..
Things can only get better!
A boat of yester-year here on display.
Some tools of the boat-painters art.
An artefact retrieved from.. somewhere.
Some more of the boat-painters-art. Based on real castles?
I can absolutely confirm that everything about the Canal District is;
"Healthily active, mildly adventurous and abounding in interest."
Unfortunately, all good things come to an end, and it was time to say goodbye!
