There were plenty of old buildings to catch my eye on our holiday, you know the sort of thing I’m drawn to, workaday, vernacular farms and homesteads that have changed only a little over the centuries or that wear their histories on their faces.I may struggle to convince you of the fact that I struggled to capture them with the camera, they just whizzed by it seemed.
I mean, canal boat holidays are supposed to be slow languid sort of affairs aren’t they? But somehow we always seemed to be on a mission!
The plus side of that is that we got as far west as the Foulridge Tunnel and as far east as Saltair and I have the photos to prove it! The fact is I could have spent longer mooching around such places.
These windows all come from buildings that had date stones over the door from the 1690’s
All is not what it seems
