The Bingley Five Rise FLOODED our Engine Bay!

August 23, 2019

We begin our day on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal at the Bingley Five Rise Locks, looking at the history of this amazing canal attraction, described by IWA co-founder, Robert Aikman, as one of the Seven Wonders of the Waterways. After getting our engine bay flooded, Colin takes a look at it's smaller sibling, the Three Rise Locks and how the canal was moved to make way for improvements to Bingley's roads.


From Bingley we make our way to the historical, architectural wonder that is Saltaire, built by Titus Salt in the 1800's, the famous Salts Mill is an amazing sight to see from the canal.
