The Horseboating Society has been very busy again, involved in the Rochdale Canal Festival, which lasts two weeks. We attended two of the three official days, at Sowerby Bridge and Todmorden.
Passenger cruises on horseboat Vixen were made on the journey from Sowerby Bridge to Hebden Bridge, then on two market days from Hebden Bridge to Todmorden and return.
The latter journeys involved 8 miles and 12 locks on each day. Passengers booked a one way or return passage and all seats were sold and even over-subscribed.
