Time for a lie-in on the Huddersfield Canal

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Just about two miles away from my home lies the Saddleworth village of Greenfield. Through its heart runs the Huddersfield Narrow canal and the river Tame. This Autumn morning was quite exceptional for its lighting and soft colours. Standing on this bridge looking at a moored narrow-boat, I hope you also enjoy this moment with me.
