View from the bridges on Jericho Lane, Barkestone (1)
As you leave Barkestone on Jericho Lane you come to two bridges. This is the view from the first bridge, (see SK7735 : Two bridges on Jericho Lane, Barkestone), over the Grantham Canal. The canal is hiding in the reeds. The hedge on the left is always good for blackberrying in the Autumn.
The land falls away at least 5 metres from the Grantham Canal down to the railway cutting, see SK7735 : View from the bridges on Jericho Lane, Barkestone (3). The dry strip of pasture between the two is a testament to the navvies' puddling skills, see SK7735 : View from the bridges on Jericho Lane, Barkestone (2).
