Beauty & the Beasts
The Leeds & Liverpool Canal between Barrowford and Shipley passes through some lovely countryside - open moors and the sides of valleys. It is only spoilt by the frequent swing bridges. At times they occur every half mile and some are so difficult to move that two people are required to provide sufficient power. There is so little traffic that we seldom were in the position to share this work with another boat.
