GUEST,Dave Illingworth Folklore: English canal system ghosts (29) RE: Folklore: English canal system ghosts 12 Apr 15


If you go onto the website SONGS OF THE INLAND WATERWAYS you will find the words of the song "There's Something In The Cutting" by my good friend Dusty Miller. To quote Dusty:- "This song was inspired by an old superstition that the cutting above Audlem Locks was haunted. No boaters used to tie overnight in that cutting."
The song is also included in Dusty's songbook THE UNKNOWN BOATMAN and a recording can be found on DPN+1's CD MIST ON THE WATER.
