Stratford on Avon Canal.
I presume this was a lockkeepers cottage. Now a private house by this flight of locks near Wilmcote.
Extra a close up of the split on the bridge to allow a horse’s tow rope to go through without unhitching the horse. Clever eh!
From my observations today I don’t think the Stratford on Avon canal is beset by the type of problem currently afflicting the Suez Canal.
