A Yorkshire Weekend - Hebden Bridge 4/7

We had a weekend away in mid-September and visited among other places Hebden Bridge and this week this series will concentrate on a few shots of that small town.

Following on from yesterdays picture Hebden Water runs through the centre of town and this is the Packhorse Bridge, so named because at this point routes from Halifax, Burnley, Rochdale and Heptonstall all came together at this river crossing.

You can just see the little family by the bridge that I featured a few weeks back that looked like this http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Seen_And_Heard__2%A3%21%3Bslash%A3%21%3B7_/

Yes...serious chocolate box material, Brian.

I think it is interesting that, in a picture full of details of interest, my eyes were still quickly drawn to the ducks swimming, bottom right.
Brian Walbey: Now you've said that Ray i can't stop looking at those ducks, I never really noticed them before.

Sweet village
Brian Walbey: It is vintage, and at the wekend I will show more of the village centre.
There is so much to look at in this shot. Very good!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Mary.
Such a pretty place, can I spy a chimney stack behind the trees, lovely Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda. It is a chimney which is more prominent in tomorrows picture.
A delightful looking little place Brian. Having waterways is always a bonus.
Brian Walbey: I always think a well looked after canal, stream or river gives character to a place Janet.
Charming!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Kavita.
I can imagine the flow of water after a heavy storm.
Brian Walbey: I believe they have had heavy rain up there this week Chad so your imagination is probably actuality.
Beautiful Yorkshire! I like this shot!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much, it is a nice place to go.

There's such a lot to see isn't there, and it looks so happy a place too.
Brian Walbey: It was very surprising being a little industrial town from times past Ellie and everyone in the centre seemed to be enjoying the lovely day.
