Since the birth of the smart phone taking wonderful photographs whilst you’re out and about has never been so easy. We’ve scoured the web and Instagram to find some of, what we feel, are the best photos of our canals. Take a look at let us know if you agree!

From sunsets to stormy skies we love how these photographs capture a multitude of beautiful colours.

Our canals are overflowing with wildlife this time of year.

Whether it’s summer, spring, winter or autumn there is always something beautiful about the canals and the surrounding area.

Some of these are so good you’d think they were taken by professionals.
