Good enough for Welcome to Yorkshire

An autumnal sunset over the Derwent, snapped by the Project Officer on his way home was selected for Welcome to Yorkshire’ November facebook album. Taken at Yedingham Bridge, North Yorkshire at the historic head of navigation on the Yorkshire River Derwent. The sign hanging from The Providence pub, right beside the river features two narrowboats carrying freight. For much of its working life however the effective head of the Derwent Navigation was at Malton, a dozen miles downstream because cargoes had to be transferred to vessels of smaller draft (which was no accident on the part of the canny Earl Fitzwilliam!) See this picture in Welcome to Yorkshire’s November Timeline album on Facebook.
