Hauling The Butty Boat (Worcester Birmingham Canal)

The Inspiration:

(freehand and painted in oils)

Walking along the towpath of The Worcester Birmingham Canal I came across this scene.

A woman hauling a butty (no motor) boat because of restricted access on the Canal.

There is no room for a motorized boat to pull the butty boat, which would normally be the case.

Looking South West on the Queens Head Public House on the right, with Sugarbrook Lane crossing at the Bridge, in the vicinity of Bromsgrove (UK)
