More of this day in 2016, with the Lord Mayor of Bradford receiving a Kennet brew at Saltaire; you can't stop Alan talking; ascending the 5-rise; and arriving at Silsden after waiting hours for one of the bridges which Bradford are responsible for to be repaired.

Not certain if the date is quite right but its not far away, Canso Canal Cape Breton island Nova Scotia. A causeway was built to link CapeBreton to the Canadian mainland. A short canal with a lock was necessary to allow boat traffic through it. Today its unlikely that such a scheme would be built as it caused environmental damage by restricting the tidal flow in the area.
