Former Worsbrough branch of the Dearne & Dove Canal
The clue is the pub through the trees - called the Boatman's Rest - and confirmed on old maps. The 2.5 mile long Worsbrough section of the Dearne and Dove Canal opened in 1804. It linked Worsbrough to the seaport of Goole. The branch closed for navigation in 1906 and was abandoned in 1961.
