Gargrave (via Bingley)

4 miles, 1 lock, 5 swing bridges

We have been to Bingley and back! But not by boat, by train. It was pretty clear that we weren’t going to get to Bingley by boat, and we couldn’t go back towards Liverpool, so 6 of us took the train to go and see the famous ‘5 rise’.

It was very impressive.

After the train trip we decided to move up to Gargrave to be nearer the broken lock in case we are allowed through. The wind picked up a lot and it was a bit of a struggle with the swing bridges, but we arrived just below Gargrave at 4:30
