Bingley Five Rise

Bingley is famous for two things -- the Bradford & Bingley Bankrupt Bank and the Bingley Five Rose staircase of locks.
I can't think of anything new to say about this masterpiece of canal architecture. Even the photograph has been seen a thousand times before. But the view from the top is stunning, the lock staircase is remarkable and the lockie who guided us up there was helpfulness personified.
We even met another Blogger Gypsy Rover.
