Royal Canal

Military Canal, Winter - 10"x14" - Watercolour

This was another contender for the charity Christmas card. The canal's full name is the Royal Military Canal and it runs across Romney Marsh. It was built as a defence against the threatened invasion of Britain by Napoleon at the beginning of the 19th Century. I like man-made waterways and used to have a share in a canal boat. I now have an inflatable dinghy with an electric outboard ideal for exploring these out of the way places.
