'Thea II' Hollins Green 12th July 2017
While on the way to photograph 'Arklow Fortune' which had left the top end my attention was diverted to 'Thea II' which had just left Irlam to swing below the locks. I just had enough time to get to the end of the straight at Cadishead where the canal bends round past Hollins Green. 'Thea II' was just coming under the disused railway viaduct when i arrived giving enough time for the last cloud of the day to clear. The affect of the vessel drawing the water in from the banks can be seen here 12/07/17.
