Fathers Day

My interest in canals comes from my father, Frank Robinson. He got his love for canals from his father George Robinson. My Grandad had a few boats while my father was young. They kept them at Scarisbrick in Lancashire, one of my favourite places on the canal network. My dad was a member of the IWA for over 40 years.  Without my dad and grandad I wouldn't have
