Our journey on the Huddersfield Canal

Class: Year 4 Year: 2020 - 2021

On 8th Decemeber, we went on a barge as part of our learning challenge 'Why is there a canal in Hyde?' We met our Captain Mark at Portland Basin in Ashton. The Ashton Canal, Huddersfield Canal and the Peak Forest Canal all meet at this junction. We travelled along the Huddersfield Canal, through a dark tunnel and in to a lock towards Stalybridge. It took about 10 minutes to go up the lock. We got off the barge and had a look over the bridge to see how deep the lock was. We were very surprised!surpriseOn the way back, we saw a moored barge with the puppets Rosie and Jim inside. Despite the bad weather we had a great trip and were grateful to be out of school for a few hours.

Love to learn and learn to love
