Time to throw off some rustiness... I was much in need of some fresh air and exercise and thankfully this weekend's weather has not been too bad - drier and crisper than of late. I needed my thermal underpinnings (!) and it was very muddy underfoot in parts but I managed a decent walk on one of my regular routes, along the canal to Dowley Gap and then back along the River Aire and through Roberts Park. Apparently parts of southern England have had their wettest January since 1910. I don't think it has been quite so bad here in West Yorkshire. The river is very full, as you can see, but it's not flooding.
