Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I am continuing with my theme of canals but this is no longer the Leeds to Liverpool Canal. Here, I have gone over the border into North Yorkshire and this is a view of part of the Rochdale Canal at Hebden Bridge.

This canal has a similar use to the previous one. It has a large number of narrowboats, many for leisure, some for permanent occupation. Three of these boats can be seen beyond the stone bridge.

We talked with one of the boat owners about his life and love of the water. He had had a boat as a home for many years because he loved the life style. He shared the boat with his dog and it looked a cosy, welcoming place. However, he stated that many recent owners had purchased a boat not because they wanted to live on the water but because they were unable to afford a proper house.

With the recent fall in house prices I have a feeling that there may be a turnabout and boat prices may begin to climb!!!

Many thanks for your visit.
I hope you found it interesting
Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph.
