Very nice. What are the buckets for?

In the old days these were working boats bringing all manner of goods across England. The people lived on the boats and took great pride in decorating all the utensils they used in this narrow space. There is a particular form of canal art including castles and flowers and playing cards and lots more.... Buckets would have been used a lot on the boats. There is even a type of music I heard which I can only describe as like gypsy and Irish traditional.
