Photographer's Note

This is yet another picture taken during a wonderful "mini TE meeting" in Oxfordshire thanks to Richard who did all the organisiation for our little group and entertained us so very well.

This one was taken in the little village of Cropredy around 7.30 a.m. before breakfast one lovely morning just as the sun was rising above the trees and casting some lovely light across the Oxford Canal onto the walls of the lock-keeper's cottage and the distant trees and boats.

The Oxford Canal is a 78-mile-long (126 km) narrow canal in central England linking Oxford with Coventry via Banbury and Rugby. It connects with the River Thames at Oxford, to the Grand Union Canal at the villages of Braunston and Napton-on-the-Hill, and to the Coventry Canal at Hawkesbury Junction in Bedworth just north of Coventry.

It passes mainly through the Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire countryside and is often considered to be one of the most scenic canals in Britain.
