SO - first thing this morning, we donned our walking gear and headed off along the tow-path through town to take a look.
The tow-path through Wakefield is a bit hit and miss if we're honest... you have to work it out by trial and error in places. Not to worry - we know the town well enough so it isn't a problem for us.
Fall Ings Lock is the 1st lock on the Calder & Hebble Navigation from the River. It's a wide, deep lock and although we've yet to boat through it, we're familiar with it from our walks along the canal. The workforce have put in that temporary road stuff they use in show grounds and "set up camp" by the lock for their open day.
