Leeds - Liverpool Canal was on Channel 4 this evening with Timothy West and Prunella Scales - didn't spot it in time to put a post on the Forum:

I can just imagine it - and the fury of people on canal boats as the jet ski throws water in their faces  >104<

I attended a work training course near Skipton today and am spending the night at the Rendezvous Hotel in Skipton. From my bedroom window I can see a barge on... the Leeds - Liverpool Canal!

Although I'm fairly close to Follyland, I don't feel like trudging through the mud to Hollin Hall right now!   :)

How lovely LC  8)

I don't blame you for not trudging to Hollin Hall in the mud although it must have been tempting!  :)

Strange... >367<

...you wouldn't think that a photograph - essentially of a car park, out-buildings and refuse bins - could be so evocative; but there is something reassuringly warm and familiar at seeing the barge and knowing it is on the Leeds-Liverpool canal.   :)

It is easy to imagine somewhere, just beyond the trees, Ron, shoulders hunched and sitting astride his motorbike, saying:

"...old Hercules 'll be along that path in a moment!"    >315<

Thank you for posting this LC!    >41<
