Words on Water

by Jeff Phelps on September 21st, 2016

On the morning of 20th August we went on the narrow boat, The Shropshire Lad from Lyneal Wharf to Ellesmere and back. We looked at poems inspired by canals and water, learnt about the wildlife and about the chequered history of this canal. Then in the afternoon we did it all over again.

On the way back we did some writing and shared our work. Then on 17th September we had a slot at Merefest where we read our work to the appreciative visitors in the Literature Tent. What a great event.

The whole day and the Literature Tent was arranged by Simon Fletcher whose Offa’s Press is based in Shropshire.
