22 - Skipton To Rodley. Leeds and Liverpool Canal.

Friday 18th July 2003

Greg Chapman jumped ship to collect his car from Lancaster, as we left at 08:40 and then would be joining us later at around Bingley. The Brompton was got out for Trevor to have a go at swing bridge opening, eventually Neil took over at Kildwick and cycled to Bingley, opening all the bridges as the boat appeared. After an aborted Greg meet up, we eventually all met up at the top of the Five-Rise (12:40).
The famous Barry was in attendance and we agreed to start down in around half an hours time, after a needed water fill up, lunch and cakes from the stables cafe. Neil steered, Barry directed and we were soon at the bottom (13:40) We were surprised at the Three-Rise as a BW bod was conducting operations there, a new development for us. On we clanked towards the "No go" areas of deepest Kirkstall. We stopped for the night at Rodley, a bit up from the Swing Bridge, on untaken Long Term moorings, just below Owl Swing Bridge No 216.
"The Railway" was our chosen venue for the night. OK bar food and beer. Bob Wood was coming up overnight by coach, then meeting up early in the morning, so locations were exchanged for around a 07:00 arrival for Bob.
