Despite it all, a lovely canal

Despite the problems with lack of water and some heavy locks, the Huddersfield Narrow is a marvellous canal. It's a lot more enjoyable than the reputation that goes before it - thanks in large part to the efforts of the BW men on the ground who work wonders to keep boats running up and down the east side.
Makes you wonder whether some of the millions being spent on long term restoration projects and city centre waterway schemes might not be better earmarked for getting some of our existing canals like this one working properly.
