If I’d realised that access to the towpath was closed off to all but private residents moored along the canal-side, I doubt if I’d have planned to enjoy an exploratory walk along London’s ‘Little Venice’ this afternoon. Apart from the little yellow-fronted boat, which was moored beyond the gate across the towpath, I was sadly unable to get up-close-and-personal to any of the other boats.
Instead I made the best of a bad job and walked along the road on either side, feeling somewhat imprisoned behind the black iron railings. I did still enjoy my wandering walk today, but not quite in the way I’d hoped… so I’m glad I went, but I doubt if I’ll go back. 🙂
