Canals in the UK

I'm not an expert on the UK canal system, this is just a synopsis of what I've read and learned.

Two poems - the only poetry I've ever writen. They are both about the Lake District National Park in England. The mountains there are older than the Alps and are known as Fells, a Nordic word which the Vikings gave them when they invaded the area. Most of the features of the area have Nordic names; the streams are called Becks and a lot of the place names are also Nordic.
See pictures of the Lake District <a href="http://www.keswick.u-net.com/ldp.htm/" target="_blank">HERE</a>, a web site (not mine) that posts new pictures every few days. The photographs are all taken by Ann Bowker of Keswick in Cumbria, UK.


My photographs of Stonehenge were taken over 30 years ago, all on film (no digital in those days!), processed and printed by myself. The camera was a Canon AE1 (the original, not the "programme" model).
Stonehenge is not a single structure all built at the same time, but is a number of structures, modified and/or updated over a period of 1,400 years between 3,000 BC and 1,500 BC.
Good sites for facts and information are . . .
