It must be spring!
If yesterday's photo showed a popular spot for an outing in the early 20th century, then today's shows the modern equivalent. I don't suppose the early residents of Saltaire would have had any notion that one day the village would be designated a World Heritage Site and would become a real draw for tourists. This is the approach along the canal towpath, with the church on the right bank and the New Mill ahead. The eagle-eyed among you will have spotted today's refreshments.... yes, the red and yellow ice-cream boat is back, so it must be spring - even though it doesn't look very spring-like! (After being warm and sunny all week when I've been stuck indoors, it's cool and cloudy again now it's the weekend.)
