IWA Rally 1972



This is one of our family home movies of my Dad and Grandad and Rikki the dog taking Dunkirk veteran Albatross to the IWA Rally in Lymm on the Bridgewater Canal in 1972 (before I was born). It is nice to see the number of wooden and fibreglass boats on the canal in the days before the plague of narrowboats.
The video shows Dean Locks and Pagefield Lock in Wigan and Barton Swing Aqueduct.
