And exercising the dogs.
Notice the newly laid tarmac.
The electricity pylon is prominent and the cables pass overhead here. The line runs along the Aire Valley, and at one time would have distributed power from Kirkstall Power Station, which was demolished many years ago.
Towpath Works in Kirkstall & Newlay, winter 2014-15

The towpath of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal between Kirkstall Bridge (SE258354) and Newlay Bridge (SE2400366) has been undergoing major restoration during the winter of 2014-15. The towpath has been widened in places and given a new tarmac surface. This has resulted in the towpath being closed, mostly on weekdays.
It looks like a lot of overhanging trees have been cut back on the opposite (south) side of the canal as well.
