Thackley and Esholt 7


We're doubling back now to cross the River Aire again. Here it flows through a man-made cutting skirting the sewage works, with all the hallmarks of early 20th century municipal 'works', including a very elaborate metal footbridge that looks as though it has pretensions to being the drawbridge of a castle. Luckily I am quite slender but even so I had a struggle to squeeze past the metal post!


In contrast, the Leeds-Liverpool Canal on this stretch has a gentle, rural tranquillity.


Spring is on its way and the cheery yellow gorse is bursting into bloom.

  1. That sure is an unusual bridge. Love the peacefulness of the canal shot.

  2. It looks as though you'd need to be reasonably slim to negotiate the bridge even without the obstacle of the post. The towpath walk looks very inviting.

  6. What an interesting looking bridge. We don't have footbridges like that around here.
