Snow on the Huddersfield Narrow

No, this is nothing to do with the current bout of wintry weather! Anyone who saw the first programme in TV historian Dan Snow's new series "Locomotion - Dan Snow's History of Railways" may have seen that a section of the programme was filmed on a canal.

The filming was done on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal at Diggle featuring the horse-drawn boat Maria, with members of the Horseboating Society as eye candy.

The episode cam be watched here on BBC iPlayer until 5th February. The canal section begins about 10 minutes into the programme.
