Lift Bridge

This week's Sky Watch shows the lift bridge at the new Frenches Marina in Greenfield, around 6 miles from Ashton.

The bridge, which carries the canal towpath, lifts up to allow boats to move between the marina and the Huddersfield Canal. The Structure of the bridge, along with the retro lamp post, make interesting shapes against the sky, set above the outline of Alphin Pike and Noon Sun Hill in the background.

Behind the marina are Greenfield's new Tesco store on the left and the Kingfisher pub on the right. This photo continues the canal theme from Monday!

See Aerial View of this location.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!


  1. This is an interesting series on your canals.Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  2. What a very convenient little marina with a Tesco and a pub right there at hand! That is good planning.

  3. This is an interesting photo--all sorts of things to look at and study. I like your composition and also the bridge design and the old-time lamppost--reminds me of Narnia a bit.

  4. Captured so beautifully! Have a happy weekend and happy sky watching.
