Canal View at Shipley Wharf

At the end of the 19th century the view along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal would probably be a lot more smoggy, with smoke coming from the chimneys and more narrow boats going about the serious business of transporting goods for sale. Otherwise it may well have looked much like this.

On a business trip with a colleague, we found ourselves staying in Shipley, right opposite the Shipley Wharf. A summer’s evening offered a great opportunity for a walk along the canal to Saltaire and back.

In the mid-19th century Sir Titus Salt developed the area, to consolidate his textile production, by establishing Saltaire Mill, with a village to house his workers. His legacy, now offices and a museum next to the River Aire makes an interesting spot to walk and research.

Life is a journey. Have fun, eat well and take a camera.

Traveling, normally with my wife, whenever and wherever we can make the opportunities. And of course, with a camera. It goes without saying that if there's good food to be had we'll find it.
