New and old


There's a new venture started up in Saltaire. There used to be a 'waterbus' giving regular trips along the canal but that ceased several years ago. Since then, apart from a few special cruises arranged at the Festival weekends, there has been nothing. Now an enterprising boat owner is running regular short trips on the aptly-named 'Titus', from the Victoria Road bridge. At only £4 a trip, it's a pleasant way to spend half an hour or so. Cruising past Salts Mill and the church, you can imagine yourself back in a time when life was taken at a slower pace and the waterway passing through the village was a crucial artery for trade.

  3. Wonderful. I have long had thoughts of taking a slow ride in a canal boat.
