The perfect day for a quiet stroll along the Montgomery Canal.
Lock 2 at Aston Locks on the Montgomery Canal in Shropshire UK
The main reason for visiting, what is the closest canal to where I live, was to see an adjacent nature reserve. But having got there I couldn't resist the opportunity to walk along the Montgomery Canal.
The first leaves of autumn have begun to fall onto the water which which only went to emphasise the tranquility of the scene.
The Monty is still undergoing restoration and, as a result, you can only travel a few miles before you have to turn back. As a result I don't think it is as popular as it could be.
Good news for those of us who enjoy peace and quiet.
