Photographer's Note

This the 4th in the barges series and are the barges refered to in the painted buckets picture.
What you see are four cannal barges (narow boats) moored together, the man is standing in the stern (rear) of the living quarters barge pucking his future dinner of Pheasant. The others are used for his living of selling coal and wood see sign on roof of the left hand barge.These boat have been restored to perfect condition and are spotlessly clean and neat, I am sure I have seen a short Television artical on local news about him being one of the last of the true working bargee`s.
The path on the left when along side a cannal is called a tow path because up until the invention of steam power they were towed by a single horse plodding along.
Sorry about the bright orange fence but the people who run the cannals were doing some repair work to the path edge and it was supossed to stop people from falling in, just a bit unsightly and too much to remove to make the picture neater.
