Following on from Loyd’s watery thoughts we’re starting this month on an adventure to discover what can’t be seen.

Do you live somewhere where rivers flow or used to flow, where tides rest or waterways hide from our view?

The Isle of Skye brings back many memories of streams undiscovered and natural springs of the freshest water imaginable to me, then of course, closer to where I grew up there are the wonderful Roman Baths, a voyage underground to some of the most spectacular hidden waterways imaginable.

From the sacred spring to the great bath, this has got to be one of the most precious of our nation’s hidden waterways and how lucky I was to have experienced this so many times growing up in the west country.

If you’ve got some hidden waterways you’d like to share, we’d love to hear about them.

    Ive got some trip photos from a boat trip up the very closed Melton and Oakham canal. It is highly likely we were the first powered craft on that perticular section in 60 odd years.

    Ill see if the pics are any good, and send em over if they are.
