The Workboat

 

The real reason I was at the Plex Lane Bridge on the Leeds Liverool Canal was to find the World War II pillbox that formed part of Stop Line 14. I did find it but could not really get a worthwhile picture of it so this workboat made a reasonable alternative. The pillbox may be seen in the background almost hidden by the branches of the tree.

The boat has a more of a functional "charm" I guess rather than the usual colourful canal boats normally seen. I like the reflection in the water with the bliue very prominent. I can imagine at this point in early summer, this would be a very different view now with the pill box completely gone from sight.
Les Auld: That's British Waterways to a T Alan, functional and mundane. Thanks for the comment.
Interesting looking canal boat Les, I wonder what it is used for. Nice reflection also as Alan says.
Les Auld: I suspect they use it for clearing the canal banks Brian, thanks for the comment.
What does this boat get used for Les? Is it an old coal barge or similar?
Les Auld: Made to order for British Waterways Bill as a general purpose workboat, thanks for the comment.

I see the pillbox, and I also see a magnificent reflection in the glass-like water.
Les Auld: Well spotted Ellie, thanks for the comment.
