I learned its proper name (Hebblefoot) in an old article. Like Brookfoot and Luddendenfoot, it denotes the spot where a tributary stream joins the River Calder.
Others may know it as the Calder and Hebble junction, or the Salterhebble Canal Basin area.
Meadow Pipit 2 , probably displaced by deep snow on the tops – unusual here. Feeding along the water’s edge.
Tree Sparrows used to nest in a hole in the masonry of the railway viaduct in the 1990s.
Very pretty all round in the snow.
Generally squalid without snow but often quite rich in birds.
A long time since the canal froze!
The naturalists of old left many records of water plants and water snails from this area.
