A Walk around the Wharf, Sowerby Bridge on a Summer's Morning.

I found myself with half an hour to pass I decided to take the camera out and for a short shoot and walk session around the canal wharf at Sowerby Bridge. The wharf is also the junction where the Rochdale Canal meets the Calder & Hebble Navigation.


Well a little bit of history on the wharf, initially the Calder & Hebble Navigation reached Sowerby Bridge during the 1870's and warehouses 1 and 2 were built, these now house the Moorings bar and Temujin restaurant, as well as a number of other small businesses and are Grade II listed. When the Rochdale Canal act was passed in 1793 the Calder & Hebble canal company were told to build whatever wharves and warehouses the Rochdale Canal required at there expense, this lead to the development of warehouses 3 &4 with number 3 becoming known as the salt warehouse due to the storing of salt there. This is the only warehouses that offers canal side access to both the Rochdale Canal and the Calder & Hebble Navigation. Again both building are Grade II listed and have been developed as small business centres alongside the existing boat yard.

The walk I took started at lock number 2 before Tuel Lane Tunnel and I followed the Rochdale Canal path passed lock 1, warehouses 3 & 4, the Kirkham Turn where the canals meet to Chain Bridge which crossers the Calder & Hebble Navigation alongside the Navigation Inn.
I then walked the opposite towpath back towards the main basin and warehouse number 1.

The pictures were taken on the 19 July 2017 using my Nikon D3300 DLR camera. The full album of 23 pictures is a Clickasnap exclusive with the exception of the 6 pictures of reduced size posted here. Please click the link below the pictures to view the full album.

Teguise Market Day, Lanzarote

Teguise is a small village on the island of Lanzarote. It is now a popular tourist attraction because of the Sunday market held their weekly and is home to the Santa Barbara Castle atop Mount Guanapay overlooking the town. The castle was built by Don Sanco de Herrera in the 16th Century as a watch tower to protect islanders from invaders and mostly pirates. The castle was restored in the 1980's and is now home to the islands pirate museum. Other points of interest in Teguise are the windmill and the clock tower for the church of Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe

Until 1852 Teguise was the capital of the Lanzarote and was also where Spain administered the whole of the Canary Islands from for a time.

I was there for the Sunday market and took these pictures using a Samsung Galaxy Tablet on July 28 2013. They can also be seen on Clickasnap where they are full resolution, size and un-watermarked.
