Horse Drawn Boat

We have recently passed the horse drawn boat Elland as it makes it’s way along the Leeds and Liverpool, probably the first horse drawn boat along the length for over 60 years. More about Elland. It is lovely to see the guys in traditional garb and most amazingly they legged it through the Foulridge tunnel. Unladen L&L short boats used to take about and hour to go through, so they did really well to leg a narrow through in 38 minutes, well done guys!

Do have a look at the Horse Boating Society web site , and maybe even give them a helping hand!
