Canal Date 11th June 2012
Location Near Bingley on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal
It’s been a long time since I updated the blog. Partly down to poor internet connection but mainly down to me being far too lazy and laid back.
Well, where have we been since the last update?
We went to see the world famous Wigan Pier on the Leeds & Canal. As attractions go, I don’t think I have ever been so disappointed in my life. I am sure that if George Orwell had not used it as a title for one of his books it would have disappeared years ago.
|Wigan Pier- Yes thats all there is.|
|Traffic Lights are always on red on the canal as well!|
We have about finished the best of the Leeds & Liverpool now. We are about to approach the Famous Bingley staircase locks. We shall rest for a while before tackling them later this week.
I can not say loud enough how good this canal is. Not only the old industrial towns with the mills and the open country with superb views, but there is very little traffic to get in the way.
