Preston Brook by the look of the pictures.
My girlfriend once gave a long list of why I should have bought a narrow boat rather than a sail boat, included such things as
There is always a pub near by
Can get off for a walk any time
If you put something down, it will stay where you left it
Turning corners is a sedate affair, not accompanied by loud noises and flappy things
is pretty easy, if you are really lost
, ask someone on the tow path
You dont need to spend a fortune on an anchor
No need for all those bits of string
Never been sea sick on a narrow boat
If my dog could write, she would probably have the same list but would have added that a canal is more convenient for taking a leak than somewhere in the middle of the Irish Sea.
