Barrowford to Salterforth

Having climbed out of the valley of the Colne and Pendle, we are now 487 feet above sea level. We then come to the Foulridge tunnel, which is controlled by traffic lights. After waiting over a hour with the lights on red, another boat joined us and said they had never seen the lights on green. In the end we just went for it, feeling okay as you could actually see the other end of the tunnel. It took 15 minutes to get through and the lights at the other end were also on red!

Nearly at the end, luckily without meeting anyone


Foulridge Wharf


The countryside is changing now as we leave Lancashire and enter Yorkshire


The first canalside pub, since Wigan and very nice it was too. It actually predates the canal with stalactites in the cellar.
