To Bugsworth Basin

We came this way in the summer of 2010 but the weather was grey and wet so we saw nothing of the countryside.  The canal forks at the end and we took the right-hand branch (do forks have branches?) to Whalley Bridge which confirmed our dismal view of the canal.

Today, in October, the sun shone all day; we took the left prong to Bugsworth Basin and we are in a different world.

There was the occasional lift bridge to negotiate......

...and a few swing bridges.......


......fortunately no breach like the one in 1973.........

.......and a wonderful open space with room for dozens of boats at Bugsworth Basin.

Even the sunset was glorious.

Goodnight Bugsworth !
