A Walk in September Sunshine
A Walk in September Sunshine
Type: Countryside
Submitted by:David Whipp
Item Location: Greenberfield, Barnoldswick BB18 5SU


Greenberfield Locks are nice and handy to go for a short walk.

The Lock Stop cabin is a good spot for refreshments at the beginning and end of a walk.

Beyond the locks, quiet countryside takes control of the towpath.

Dairy cows, sheep and horses graze and birds skim the water taking their fill of insects.

A good circuit takes you northwards along the towpath. Past bridge 158 and round the bend, a style on your right skirts you around the Rolls-Royce Ghyll Brow plant over the fields. (This can be a muddy trod especially at the gate holes...).

You can complete a short circuit by turning right when you reach the road or add some length to the route by going left down the hill (Ghyll Brow) and crossing the road to find the gate taking you on the path past Ghyll Hall Farm to Ghyll Church. Ghyll Lane leads you back towards town.

Crossing Skipton Road and bearing right brings you back towards the canal and locks.

These photos were taken during a rare sunny day in September 2012.
