Still there. Canal deserted, but overflowing with water. Drought; what drought?

"Stumbled" across this one whilst out for a walk along the cut. Details as previous contributors have reported

I think the description of SW is OK (I feel the description refers to the SW base of arch, being on the west side of the canal and the south side of the bridge, and ted is referring to the FB being on the eastern corner of that base??) Anyway, its a good FB and a nice place.
