Shannon and I went cycling along the towpath at the weekend, and stopped at Pentoon Hook Lock. She took this shot of a latch embedded in a tree near the riverside.
We have no idea what it’s for, but from the way the bark has congealed around it it’s been there for a while. It reminds me of a tree in my Grandfather’s old house in Lincoln that had grown around a small toy car, nearly smothering it.
