      Hardcastle crag Hebden Bridge

      May 28 in England ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

      A walk up to Hardcastle crag today in the rain. It is the home of the northern hairy wood ant. Worker ants can reach sizes of up to 9 mm long; queens are larger, reaching 12 mm. I didn’t see any it was too wet and I think they were all washed away in the rain.
      No photos as I didn’t want to get my phone wet but I did get a video of the lock gate being used at Hebden Bridge.

    • Day 1

      West Yorkshire; Hebden Bridge

      June 15 in England ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

      📌 Our first impressions of Hebden bridge were great, a town within a valley, on a river with small stone houses/shop fronts. The vibe was familiar to home, similar to Brunswick or Fitzroy with cool shops/pubs/ cafes and super friendly and trendy people.

      📌 We settled in over the first week in the UK, it was nice to have a bedroom, it was nice to not move tolieteries or bags. Emilie's house was lovely, old but trendy and comforting. It was especially nice to have Brunny around all the time.

      📌 The first weekend we went out for a few drinks and ended up staying out to last call, chatting with Emilie's friends including her hilarious Italian friend and another woman who had done really interesting work including Rwanda and Ethiopia.

      📌 We walked along the canals, an extensive network that goes to Manchester and all through the UK. The boats moared along the edge added a unique, charming touch.

      📌 Wednesday evening took us to the Killers, what a show, it was at the new Co Op stadium and the sound, the entertainment and crowd were brilliant. It was great fun. The evening was complemented also by a delicious dinner at a South African restaurant in the northern QTR of Manchester, a trendy and vibrant area of the city.

    • Day 113

      Wearing the trousers

      September 26, 2021 in England ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

      Sitting on a peninsula, Blackpool has fewer opportunities for excursions than some places but there's a direct rail line across the Pennines as far as York. On the Sunday we take a day out to Hebden Bridge, an attractive stone-built town deep in the Calder valley. In the Industrial Revolution, because of the fast-flowing rivers, it was a haven for weaving mills and was known as Trouser Town.

      The mills have long closed but Hebden Bridge is popular with artists and tourists. It's got a pub/hotel called the Old Gate with outdoor seating, where we enjoy the last of the good weather. And guess what---it's on another canal. This one is the Rochdale Canal which I've never been on but plenty of people have, and the towpath makes a nice walk.
