Brindley, in the yellow sweater, is the mascot for "Emma Maye" - The Wool Boat. Pictured here with three of our own reprobates when we met up with Colin & Carole at Westport Lake moorings.
The Wool Boat is one of the canal Roving Traders, selling yarn and hand-knitted woollen goods to customers along the towpath. They also have an on-line shop. More information can be found on their website
