Flooded Mines and 200ft Electric Locks. Narrowboat from Leeds to Castleford

August 30, 2019

After the eye-candy videography of the Yorkshire Dales and the Pennines, we bring narrowboat Silver Fox back into civilisation, making a brief visit to Leeds. We leave via Lock One and drop onto the Aire and Calder Navigation, passing Thwaite Mills, Lemonroyd Marina and the flooded St Aidan's opencast mine, now a nature reserve. Colin finds out why the canal and river were re-routed thirty years ago, and we end our journey in our old hometown of Castleford. Unfortunatley, not much fun for Dillon as he has some dental work planned!
