Photographer's Note

A few days before yesterdays posting I took this view of the canal below the cottage, which is just above the bank on the right. At the time I thought the Huddersfield narrow canal was so firmly closed (with the locks filled with conrete, filled in lengths, and even a factory built over it at one point) that it cold never be reopened. 3 years later a 20 year restoration plan began, which resulted in the canal being reopened in 2001. The warves at Saddleworth have now been converted into bijou apartments.
