Driffield Navigation in January

24 Jan
I posted a shot from this spot in June when all was green and leafy. It was so gloomy when I visited the other day that I thought why not a monchrome shot.

Driffield Navigation

11 Jun
About 18 miles due north of Hull is Driffield, the Capital of the Wolds. It’s a pretty enough little town that has probably seen better times. The picture shows the Navigation built to connect Driffield with Hull and the Humber. This waterway is really the River Hull straightened out and made navigable. Nowadays it mainly pleasure craft that use it; the last commercial traffic was in the 1940s.
