Photographer's Note

Still on the tow path, but this time showing a boat in all its (washday) splendour! This narrowboat, moored on the canal at Bingley' is used as a permanent home.
According to a study by David Butcher in which dialects were recorded the name 'Hodmedod' is a Suffolk dialect name for 'snail' - very apt for this form of transport! Evidently in Norfolk this name is more commonly used for a hedgehog and 'dodman' for snail.There may well be other uses and/or variations in other counties.
