Narrowboats, Waterfalls and Leaky Lock Gates at Walsden, West Yorkshire
With a few hours to kill on a bank holiday weekend I decided to go for a walk along the Rochdale Canal from Summit Tunnel to Todmorden and whilst taking a number of pictures I also took several short films using my camera, 2 of which I have uploaded for viewing on YouTube as well as below.
The first video was taken from bridge number 32 Copperas Bridge which carries the A6033 Rochdale Road across the canal. It shows a narrowboat sailing along the canal westward away from Gauxholme Railway Bridge.
The second short clip was taken showing a waterfall flowing nearby at the end of Farnboro Street alongside the Rochdale Canal. I just kind of found it relaxing watching the water cascading over the edge.

And the 3rd video shows a scene at lock 31 on the Rochdale Canal also known as Lightbank Lock. I just found something very relaxing about flow of water through the side and bottom of the gate.
