We’ve been walking the local canals and lanes again this week. Our starting point was at 14 Locks and we walked from there towards Newport on one day and towards Rogerstone a couple of days later. On saturday we went to 14 Locks again – this time so that Hubby could go for a bike ride while I sat in the sun and had a coffee! Lots of visits as Hubby decided he wanted new flat pedals on his bicycle and the bike shop is near to 14 Locks!! One visit to look for pedals, another to drop off bike as he couldn’t get one pedal off and the third to pick it up after being in the workshop!!
Our other walks this week have been in the lanes near home- dashing out between showers!!
I’ve deliberately decided to amass the pictures this week so that I could try out PicMonkey to make a collage. I hope you like my first effort!
Thanks to Elaine at Fun as a Gran for the idea 🙂
Starting from the top:
One of the locks – This is on the Monmouthshire -Brecon canal from Newport to Rogerstone. Although the water still runs through the canal and locks, none of it this area is navigable.
Tree stump – seen this just inside someone’s driveway.
Capstan – This has been salvaged by a farmer and he uses it to secure his gate.
Dragon fly sculpture in the holding lock (now a small lake) at 14 Locks. PICTURE OF THE WEEK.
Some fungus growing on a tree stump on the Severn Levels. I’m not keen on this picture as the colour of the fungus didn’t capture very well.
Lock winder at 14 Locks.
