This beautiful garden is at Wardle Lock at Middlewich on the Shropshire Union.  We spent a lovely afternoon here once when our boat broke down.  I lay in the sun while it was fixed!

In those days the garden was beautifully kept, by an old lady lock-keeper who'd been on the canals all her life but after her death it was left to run wild.  This is a memory of happier times.
