Today's journey has been just that, going round the bends through the beautiful rolling hillsides of North Yorkshire and into Lancashire. The weather has been good, dry with quite a bit of sun, its still not dark and it's 10pm. Yes, I know the days are getting shorter from now on........
Looking back from the one of the Bank Newton locks, the hills in the background.
An unusual bridge at East Marton,
with a rolling post at the side that the ropes from the horse drawn boats could run over as the canal bends sharply through the bridge.
Through the tunnel of trees and out into the sunshine again.
A lovely stone lock cottage, with the date 1791 over the door.
And to show who has done all the work today.......
No bridges to open today, just 12 locks, locking up with nb Grace through Bank Newton locks.
