Further exploration of the Lancaster Canal north to Kendal.
Sunday 18th November. Westmorland Show showground to A590 underpass.
One would expect this to be a repetitious exercise having the canal as a backdrop, but there seems to be something different on each visit.
Today reflections in the water produced the most perfect, natural, mirror images I remember anywhere. The combination of a sharp, blue sky sunny day, and no wind were the contributors.
|It is difficult to believe that these are just reflections in the water|
|Stainton Beck which runs under the canal, autumn colours are now waning fast|
|Another magic reflection|
|This is the end of the water bearing canal going north - next pic is just through the bridge|
|Volunteer work in progress attempting restoration - I think the water arises from recent heavy rain only. Another dramatic reflection|
|A few yards further on the canal is now filled in, but footpath continues|
|Footpath goes under A590 and turns sharp right - my furthest on this trip, I returned by minor roads. Reconnecting the canal here would be a major engineering job|
|My starting point next time|
