Alice(?) at Cosgrove, 2015
There is a bit of a story behind this photo. As I walked along the canal I stopped to admire this boat, it was immaculately clean and polished. I got chatting to the owner and he showed me the removable bow extension. I've never seen anything like that before. To get a photograph of this I had to cross over the canal and walk along a canal-side path past some private moorings. Several people, men and women, on the moorings became offensively angry because I walked past their private mooring. One guy even called me a, "piece of shit" and wanted to pick a fight, (bear in mind I am a quiet, grey-haired, 69 year old, pensioner). There are some strange people among the private moorings at Cosgrove.

It's a bit north of Milton Keynes, but too good a photo to not include.

Narrowboat with an unusual hull design, 2015
Although I find it unattractive, it must be much cheaper to build than a hull with curves.
