Also in the centre of Bingley, the Leeds-Liverpool Canal threads its way though, alongside the railway and a relatively new trunk road (see here). This rather striking curve in the canal resulted from the need to move it a few yards over, to make room for the 'bypass' road (which actually goes right through the middle of the town but has freed up the old Main Street from traffic jams). The land to the left was until fairly recently a string of mills and industrial works. There are few left; most of the buildings have been converted into flats or demolished and residential new builds constructed.
