Rodley to Apperley Bridge on the Leeds-Liverpool Canal

It rained massively yesterday (as you can probably see from my pictures), but when I woke up this morning I could see glorious blue sky out of my window (I really need to hang my blinds back up again!). I decided that I couldn’t really waste such beautiful weather, so I went for a walk along the canal from Rodley to Apperley Bridge and back, just over 5 miles in about 2 hours.

The blue sky was slightly deceptive since it was still absolutely freezing with a very brisk wind, but it made for a lovely walk. I just about managed to avoid a sponsored walk which was happening along the canal at the same time as my walk, I just spent the last mile weaving in and out of them all walking the other way. Definitely a walk I would do again, so much more peaceful than walking along the roadside.
