Here is the latest in the Canal & River Trust’s series of soundscapes, this one based at Glasson. No, not Glasson near Lough Ree: this Glasson is at the seaward end of a branch of the Lancaster Canal. More info here.
And if that’s not enough, here’s a video visit to the Foxton Locks while they’re drained for repairs.

The latest soundscape from the Canal & River Trust features the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct with, on one side, the canal basin at Trevor and, on the other, Whitehouses Tunnel. Take five and a half minutes off to listen.
The site itself is well worth a visit, even if you just walk across the aqueduct and back. It’s off the A5, Telford’s road: after coming from Ireland by ferry, you could take that road — older, slower but more scenic — from Holyhead instead of the A55 coastal route.
