The Diver
 David McRoberts works at Scottish Canals and told me the story about the late Jimmy; a canal diver he remembered from his first years on the canal.
 Chris O'Connell is the Senior Heritage Advisor at Scottish canals. He helped me understand the importance of the canal's preservation, and showed me where I was permitted to install The Diver.
