Try saying that six times quickly. On a recent visit passing through Frome, a very pretty town in Somerset and somewhere I hadn't been before, we came across Cheap Street. This historic thoroughfare has retained its character over the centuries, including this "leat", which carries water from the stream beneath St John's Church. A chat with a resident was very interesting, and she recounted that in centuries past, people used the leat to dispose of all sorts of things. It's still retained as an essential part of the local character and delights children, who apparently love to drop things in it and watch them race downhill.
I've used Nik to try to give a sense of age, and also to help disguise any modern appearances, and it looked best to me in mono, although I'll put a colour version up as well.
Thanks for looking. Allan
