It’s Rolagram time!
Today, Thursday, September 21st, is officially Autumn in the northern hemisphere. Following a day of very wet and windy, the sun has come out. At least for a while, and to give me time to take a walk and shoot a few photographs.
Click on an image to enlarge it The Kennet and Avon Canal flows through Bradford on Avon. It’s very popular with plenty of narrowboats passing through. Many live in them all year round and boats are available to hire for holidays. The towpath forms a major part of cycle route 4 from Bristol to London.

Sadly this month, on September 16th, it closed, serving overnight guests breakfast on the 17th. It has been mothballed for now with currently no plans for its future. Another sad victim of the economic woes of the hospitality trade. Image: Roland’s Travels The Tithe Barn.
