Iced Canal Bend


I first showed you this view of the bend in the Peak Forest Canal in January 2008 [click link to view].

Then the canal was flowing and on the right the Automasters Factory still dominated the canalside.

This year the canal was frozen over. The factory has gone and behind the trees there are new homes going up [click link to view].

At the end of the bend there is a trolly on the ice [click link to view].

In the opposite direction is the tunnel under the M67 [click link to view].

our canal has been frozen for a large part of the winter too. Someone was daft enough to drive a car onto it, or rather into it.... It has however been safe for walking on and cycling on.

Gerald,

Oh my ... your photo of the canal is just an awesome.

I don't think it sounds so great that homes will be build behind the canal.

Seems like some beauty will be lost, but I might be wrong.

Looks so clean and peaceful, maybe winding up into a spiral of calm.

Please have you all a wonderful Thursday.

I like the reflections in the ice!

The sweep of the canal makes for a great photo
