There is a pleasant riverside walk along the bank of the River Aire through Bingley. It's quite a while since I passed this way and I was pleased to see that they have tidied it all up considerably. The river runs parallel to the town's main street. Behind the shops and down to the river there is a warren of old houses and commercial premises, which at one time were a bit run down. Some have recently been converted into apartments and some new apartments built too, all with an attractive aspect onto the river. Far from spoiling it, it seems to have done a lot to improve the area. There is still a lovely pathway to walk too, right from the church down in the oldest part of the town up to Myrtle Park, a large open park where the annual Bingley Show is held.
It's a while since I entered James' Weekend Reflections - I think this photo will fit the bill nicely, don't you? For more interpretations of the popular Reflections theme, please click here.
