Sunday 1st December 2019, a set of 6 Pictures from Sowerby Bridge

Only a small selection and of no particular subject, on the day I was just taking a walk down to my local supermarket via the more scenic route over the Rochdale Canal and River Calder.

My initial picture shows the Rochdale Canal from the iron footbridge. The bridge that crossers the Rochdale Canal is known locally as the Sowerby Bridge Footbridge but it's actual name is the Co-Operative Bridge and it was built to allow workers easier access to the mills that used to be on the opposite side of the canal from the terraced housing. My walk then went along Hollins Mill Lane in the direction of Route 66 cycle way and my final pictures were of the former mill weir at Hollins. The weir was badly damaged by floods a few years ago and now a large part of it has been washed away.

The full set of 6 can be seen here, on Flickr and on Clickasnap where you can also purchase downloads of them for a small fee.
