I like to take a look at the surrounding towns when I get a chance.
Marsden town centre
Our arrival at the Marsden Portal of the Standedge Tunnel at 3.30pm offered such an opportunity and with Marsden sitting back from the canal it was an opportunity not to be missed.
Bridge over the River Colne
We set off back along the towpath to the lock beside the station and then down the hill path towards the parish church. Its a steep path put well worth the effort. Actually its no big effort to get to the town - the effort comes on the way back when you puff and pant and your calf muscles start to hurt.
Here is a selection of photo's takes from around Marsden.
