Five Rise Locks, Bingley

For the next week or so I'm in the Bradford area, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to take a stroll along the nearby Leeds and Liverpool Canal.

My walk took me from the squally showers of Shipley to the blue skies of Bingley only a couple of miles further west. I took a lot of photos along to towpath, which may feature in another blog post.

At Bingley I spent a good half-hour photographing the impressive Five Rise Locks, which form the steepest canal gradient in the UK. It was a blustery day, which put pay to any grand ideas I had about capturing crisp reflections on the water.

The Five Rise Locks really are a staggering feat of engineering and I'm so glad I was on foot instead of travelling by canal boat!
