Now that the industrial traffic has disappeared, the local canals are the haunt of pleasure boats. Many of these are converted industrial narrowboats, and are still painted in traditional colours and designs. The building on the hill in the distance is Kinver's medieval church.
A closeup of a fine example of narrowboat painting. Narrowboats nowadays are quite spacious affairs, with all 60 feet being living space and accommodation. The original working boats would cram an entire family into a bit at the back, the rest being cargo space.
Woods, farmland and rolling hills. A view from the top of Kinver Edge.
Walk anywhere around here in the right season, and you see thousands of bluebells like these. The show only lasts a couple of weeks, unfortunately, but various other wild flowers appear throughout the summer.
