I’ve been on a walk this morning with Heartbeat along the canal towards Halifax. Beginning at the The Colliers Arms on Elland Road, we made our way to the canal towpath where we enjoyed a fairly long walk past the Watermill Inn at the bottom of Salterhebble Hill. After journeying under the road we then turned around and retraced our footsteps back to the Colliers Arms where we had a very enjoyable lunch before all returning home. I didn’t take many photos, it was quite nippy so I wanted to keep my gloves on, and in addition we were walking at rather a brisk pace to keep warm. Enjoy the photos of our walk.
In this shot we are just setting off on our walk along the canal towpath. It’s used not only by walkers but also cyclists and owners walking their dogs. (watch your step!)
Apparently this used to be a Flour Mill when the canal was the main method of distributing goods everywhere in the United Kingdom. I loved the two arches.
Here we are just going under one of the bridges along the way and you can see another lock in the distance. Everyone was setting a cracking pace today, probably to keep warm!
This duck looked so forlorn resting there by itself!
At one point you have to go through a ‘tunnel’ which runs under the road. It doesn’t look it here, but it was quite dark and spooky!
This was the turning around point. I would have loved to have carried on further but we had to return.
Loved the name of this narrowboat!
