The Kennet in Saltaire

Here are a couple more photos of the Kennet in Saltaire, as it celebrated the two-hundredth anniversary of the opening of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal by recreating the first full navigation in 1816. The vessel is a restored working barge that is the floating museum and educational centre of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal Society.


  1. Very interesting....a floating museum. I'm always stunned by how different your view is. Thanks for sharing.

  2. So many people came out to see it!

  3. Lots of people to greet it.

    From time to time I have had thoughts of taking a long boat trip around the canals, but so far I haven't done it.
