Wandering Through Todmorden

Just last week my sister Ellie headed off on her Gold Duke of Edinburgh expedition down in Wales, and so me, my mum and dad felt we should join her in spirit and set off for a wander through our nearest Yorkshire town: Todmorden.

Heading off down the canal

It was a lovely clear evening, and I naturally brought along ‘Jez’, the name I’ve given to my trusty Canon 700D. We mainly just followed the path of the canal, and I snapped a few photos along the way…

The locks
Half a mill
Some noisy ducks

As we hit the half an hour mark, my watch gave me a gently buzz and reminded us that we should turn around. Wandering back was much more picturesque, as you can see…

Once we’d arrived back near the car we made our obligatory stop off at Grandma Pollard’s Fish & Chip Shop, where I once again sat by the canal and enjoyed a beautiful fish and chips made by the old man Grandad himself. It was delicious, and I stopped only to appreciate this duck as he swam by on his way.
