The A63, Brayton
The A63, Brayton
Looking southwest along the Selby Canal where the Trans Pennine Trail takes a slight detour to duck under the A63 road bridge. The canal was built in the 1770s by the Aire and Calder Canal Company, worried by rumours of a planned canal between Leeds and Selby which could have taken some of their business. It was dug in a hurry and as a result was only three and a half feet deep. The Trans Pennine Trail runs for 215 miles from Hornsea to Southport and was officially opened in September 2001.
