Hanwell Park Project
SEPTEMBER 2013 - A SLUICE TOO FAR
to Introduction and Contents
So after a glorious summer, we were certainly grateful for the ample shade afforded by Hanwell's trees, autumn
beckoned. One of the consequences of the hot dry weather was the low
level of water in the Lake. It got to the point where I was unwilling
to take the boat out as it really was just skimming the surface of the
mud and we had already had one sinking. The bulk of the work
at the start of the month, therefore, was concentrated on the second
sluice, a five minute trundle with the wheelbarrow down from the
parking area. All of the seasons bring their own attractions at Hanwell
but I couldn't resist this rather clichéd shot of early morning rays of
sun shown up by the early morning wisps of mist.
Yes, but is it art?
