There used to be dog shows in this field. They'd attract a sizeable crowd of participants and spectators and, while I never stopped to watch, I drove past and witnessed them often enought to recognise that they were a fairly regular occurrence.

Then a few years ago they just stopped. I don't know why they ended (or even realised that they had at first) but it became apparent that the field was starting to become unkempt and, before long, the container in the mddle of the field that had contained the ramps, tunnels and other obstacles for the dogs to negotiate was opened to the elements. More recently it's had sizeable chunks of its structure removed. The field seems to have a new lease of life where wildflowers are concerned though!

Well after failing miserably to come up with anything original here's my attempt. Taken just a couple of miles from Ian's rotting old hulk (the boat obviously, not Ian himself :D) these lock gates were in very poor condition and a series of repairs were being undertaken to make them usable again.

Thanks Janet & Ian, there were indeed some fine entries and especially @sirch who was so close all the way. I'm heading off in the caravan on Tuesday for a few days, so I'll be in touch before then.
