I thought some of them might make the basis of a quiz, so I wonder how you will get on with these.
Number 1 was taken in July 1982. I didn't record the exact location but the occasion was a public boat trip. It's "north of Birmingham" - but which canal?
Number 2 is another public trip also north of Brum. This time I do know the location so where is it? (Clue: Nowhere near the River Wyre!). This one is from July 1983
Number 3 is definitely not in boat trip territory. Which canal and which lock? (The bus would be a clue for those with an interest!) The date is November 1978
I'll be away until next week so answers then, unless you've guessed them all by then.
