If I had kept on walking.....

Wayside sign

 I might have reached Manchester, but following this part of the canal I was out to snap the 'Great Wall of Todmorden.  Built to retain the bank in the 19th century under the railway station and goods yard, it took over four million bricks to construct.  The silver birch trees at the top make a pretty contrast against the sky.

Walking along public paths and particularly this stretch of the canal means you encounter a variety of people, such as cyclists, hikers, people going shopping, dog walkers, and runners as well.  But in the sun it is an attractive walk.

How many times in my life have I captured the unperfect circle a bridge will mirror in the water I wonder

The deep murkiness of the canal

I love the way nature makes everything beautiful


  1. I love that imperfect circle. What a lush green place you live in!

    1. It's the valleys that run into the town Debby, the moors above are quite bare. A strange landscape for the moment but I am sure I will get used to it.

  2. I thoght the imperfect circle was my favourite until that bridge with ferns came up - what a beauty.

    1. The stillness of the water in canals reflect the world above Pat, it has always fascinated me the reflection. Against 'The Great Wall' something you can't see but there was about 6 'teenage' ducks swimming along, all exactly the same.
