Est-ce que des gens habitent sur ces bateaux ?
Bill Phillips: Many are used for holidays but there are some lived on all year round.

You live in the right area to get your rocks off at will, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Well you could say that Ray
I love these narrow boats Bill!
Bill Phillips: Great aren't they?

Like you I never tire ... and so typically English! A wonderful photo!
Bill Phillips: They have become increasingly popular both for holidays and to live on Philine

A familiar sight to any denizen of Bathampton, I can assure you. The amusing part of canal boat spotting is to observe in the UK class differences survive on the water, as on land
Bill Phillips: It is everywhere Chris. One of the reasons we are in decline
They could have simply pumped the brine into the canal instead of water, thereby avoiding the need to use boats Bill.
Bill Phillips: As theories go this one just doesn't hold water Chad

Me neither. I always fancied doing a canal boat holiday but have yet to do that.
Bill Phillips: I don't fancy a boat holiday and Ange wouldn't at any price!

I feel I have seen lamplighter before - perhaps in one of your photos or maybe they ventured down our way. Fine photo nonetheless.
Bill Phillips: I have taken photographs up at Tibberton before but I don't think i have shown this particular boat before
ImAgine never having to mow your lawn!
Bill Phillips: That would be a distinct plus Mary
I was walking part of the Lancaster canal on Sunday, they are interesting, Bill, I enjoyed watching three guys doing a three point turn in their narrow boat smile
Bill Phillips: One of these days i am going to walk the length of this canal.....well it might take more than one day
A real part of England I always think. We have several within a short drive of us.
Bill Phillips: Indeed you do. Having seen this one restored makes it a bit special.

A great country scene, it looks a well kept canal way.
Bill Phillips: It is Anne. Many years work went into restoring the canal and it is now a much loved part of this area
i was only at Bradford-on-Avon once and will never forget the narrow canal boats... thanks for the memories Bill....petersmile
Bill Phillips: They are very much a part of the scenery
Looks like a wonderful night...
Bill Phillips: Hahahahaha
There is something distinctly charming and English about these!
Bill Phillips: There is E. Very much part of our heritage
