1997 Neil cycles from Littleborough to Smithy Bridge.

The following images were taken during the 1997 Mega Cruise in "Beatty" (see Tour 97 page) after we actually got down Littleborough Flight to the first dropped Ben Healy Bridge. The canal beyond is clear, deep and weed free. The images grabbed using Hauppage Win TV tuner card. They are from a S-VHS copy of the original Hi-8 video.

Looking back at current head of navigation, dropped Ben Healey Bridge R10, B6225 in Littleborough.
