Canal Cottage, February 2018
Canon Sure Shot Sleek, – Kentmere 400
This cottage stands beside the Cromford Canal in Derbyshire, at the point where the ‘Nightingale Arm’ meets the main canal. Built by Florence Nightingale’s uncle the arm served a lead smelter at the village of Lea Bridge. Known as ‘Aqueduct Cottage’ (due to the proximity of the Leawood Aqueduct over the River Derwent) it was originally home to the Nightingale Arm’s lengthsman (the worker responsible for the maintenance and repair of a section of canal).
Another shot from my first roll of Kentmere 400 film, one of three that was a Christmas present from my wife, the Canon Sure Shot Sleek was yet another charity shop find.
