The next place along the canal, after Covenham Reservoir, is where the road crosses the canal at Fen Lane. The dominant feature here is the wharf side warehouse, the largest on the canal before reaching Louth.
|The imposing warehouse at Fen Lane, where the canal approaches from Covenham.|
|Some juvenile swans from the previous year.|
|Here we see the warehouse and the bridge carrying the road over the canal. In the days|
when the Keelboats travelled along the canal all the current fixed bridges would have
been swing bridges.
|The Crop Sprayer crossing the bridge is a reminder of Lincolnshire agriculture.|
|Goods would have been lifted to the various floors by block & tackle.|
|The loading beam is still in place above the gable front.|
|These days the building is only used as a large Dovecote!|
|From the bridge, my customary view of the canal slowly meandering to the next point|
of interest at Alvingham. Lots more to see there.
|I liked the farm buildings and reflections here.|
|The road to the right of the warehouse leads to the village of Marshchapel.|
|A mile away from the canal is the village church at Yarbough. It stands alone in a field|
and that's all I know about it but I hope to visit it soon. It looks like my kind of Church.
