The BBW Club - Fourth Outing

We’re running out of places that we can head to without having to take a car to get to them or repeating routes, and while that’s a pain in the ass all its own, it means that we’re looking further afield with a view to finding interesting places to go to.  In this particular week, we took the car to get to the start point, and with no round route to work on, we took the straight path up and then took it straight back.

While there’s still the company of friends to pass the time, it always makes for an easier walk when you’re heading in a direction you haven’t yet walked in, and while the road out was interesting enough, the walk back was very much “Been here before...”, and so for next week, we’ll be looking for something with a circular route.

That said, what we did find in the route...



Not all signs are created equal, some take time and effort and are worth all of it...



When you wander off the path anywhere in Yorkshire, you find bridges...



My old Nemesis, Stairs...


There are moving areas in any canal...



The green bits are often very interesting in a “Why’d they build it like that...?” sort of way...



Not all Bridges are created equal, and when you’re built like us, you walk on the spine of them...



Of places you thought you’d find a mechanised fountain, in the middle of a fishing pool wasn’t one of them...



Not all Railway Bridges are walkable...



Speak Friend and Enter...



Be prepared that sometimes being narrow is a bonus...



Once there were piers...



The entrance to Rivendell is also to be found in Barnsley...



This Bridge was once far wider...



The wildlife doesn’t stand still for you to photograph it...



Some Bridges are only good for one man at a time...


We’ve looked into the possibilities for some of the walks that are further away, including a few reservoirs, more on that next week...
