From the look of the wooden hull this canal boatwould have been a working boat from the late 1800’s early 1900’s.

An excellent shot! As you say…. Kind of the Sad But True syndrome.
The old boats like this at least make a photograph – it’s the newderelict clunkers lying around that spoil the picture.

A boat barely aliveGreat capture
Gosh it does seem like it has seen better days but makes for an excellent photo, really well done.
Thank you Gary
Looks to be still afloat though.
Yes but British Water Ways would have demolished her by now.
Thank you very much for the feature.
One could say that the newness has worn off. Suberb study.
What a shame she has been allowed to get in this state but it makes a great picture.
What a pity indeed that this boat came to this state. Hopefully it will be restored one day. Great shot! My fave!
