It’s odd the way that life, at times, just seems to bring together seemingly unconnected events. For example, over the weekend I was reading ‘There And Back Again’ Simon Stoker’s tale of the restoration of the Cromford Canal between 1968-1988… (review to follow)… when the central heating packed up; so, to keep warm, I cleared out the ‘snug’ (read dump!) at home.
The snug is the spare room where everything not used day-to-day seems to end up… In one of the boxes I found a load of CDs of photos taken ten years ago when I went on a 40th birthday ‘pilgrimage’ over the old haunts of my teens back in Derbyshire. I brought the CDs to work this morning and lo’ there were images of Cromford Wharf I’d taken back in 2002.
