I was walking along the towpath beside Cromford Canal this morning before discovering that part of it is closed for the whole of November.
It was enough to put me off and I took a few photos instead.
The closed section runs from Aqueduct Cottage as Derbyshire County Council call it [I've always known it as Wayfarers Cottage] to Gregory Tunnel. It's being closed whilst a works depot is being demolished.
Whilst I was stood there taking the photo four cyclists came up having ridden along the closed path. They removed the fence, came through and then put the fencing back in place ...
Before anyone points out that there are only two cyclists in the photo perhaps I should add that the other two are a little way away along the towpath, behind them.
This is the first time I have uploaded a photo from my phone to Flickr and then to Blogger. I'm quite impressed though I will stick to the camera generally. Still, the photo also went to Facebook and Twitter almost immediately ... or it would have done if the signal had been better !
