Marina

By dark_lord  
A small marina adjacent Park Gate Lock on the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal near Penkridge in Staffordshire.

It'd been a while, quite a long while in fact, since I last passed by so it was a bit of a discovery.
Looking at the map I found there was another marina a mile or so back in the village which I wasn't aware of so that's for another time.

Meanwhile, thanks to everyone who left a comment or voted on Filing My Report.

Part of our tradition, canals are in our DNA now I guess, like the steam trains that supplanted them. Like this a lot.

Aqua Marina? Not a Troy Tempest in sight, though...
If things had been different, I would love to live on a narrow boat...

Yes it's pleasant and a popular spot, so can be busy in the summer.
