Waterways 1. Canal and Towpaths of Hebden Bridge

Waterways 1. Canal and Towpaths of Hebden Bridge….. and barges and narrowboats and couple of ducks for good measure.

I think know I’m going to like Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge as I can’t see that I’ll ever be stuck for stuff to post. I love walking in cities, so there’ll be streets and lanes, I love the the country side so there’ll be paths and stiles and  I totally adore canals.

There are many canals around where we live in North-West England both in the town and cities as well as in the countryside. Their history is fascinating as so much of England’ s prosperity resulted from them in the past.

This post features the Rochdale Canal as it winds its way through the Yorkshire town of Hebden Bridge. The canal dates from the late 18th Century.

Hebden Bridge is the 4th funkiest town in the world and is also the UK town with most local identityFrom HebWeb news 

Having visited Hebden Bridge a few times, I would definitely agree with the description “funky”.  A Hebden Bridge door can be seen here and a very unusual chair on the pavement can be seen here.

And a snapshot of the Rochdale canal is coming up here…..
