Thackley and Esholt 2
Suddenly the view opens out and we can gaze across the Aire Valley towards Baildon. In the foreground is the Leeds-Liverpool Canal and beyond that the River Aire is just visible. There is a new industrial park being built on the Otley Road. I'm not sure that the modern, grey metal buildings enhance the view! I prefer Sir Titus's vision of honeyed stone for his mills.
We cross the Canal over a little swing bridge. Further on there's a long metal bridge over the river and it's flood plain. All those struts make attractive patterns in the sunshine.
