UK Canal Path Photos: Part 6

Part six in the series.  As a reminder these photos were taken at the end of May 2009 on the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.  The previous parts of the series can be found below.

In certain areas the path becomes very wide and smoothly surfaced, it was always nice when that happened.  This approaches one of the major boat tie-up areas which you can see in the background.

One of the narrow boats approaching a bridge.  They will have to pull up and have somebody jump off to move the bridge out of the way manually.  Also note one of the many idiotic gates to prevent cars/motorcycles from using the paths, these things are the bane of many UK cycle campaigners and are uniquely a British thing.

It is always slightly depressing when the trail changes to little more than a smoothed dirt path.  This was one of the better sections, it gets worse at other points along the trail.  Note the sketchy tied plastic bag on the fence...

Until next time thanks for viewing.  If you would like larger copies of any of the pictures in this series please send me an email or add a comment and I will gladly provide.  All images are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 Unported License -John
