Slow TV: take a 2.5 hour narrowboat cruise down an English canal

Slow TV YouTuber CruisingTheCut shared a relaxing cruise through part of the Macclesfield canal, a 26-mile historic waterway in Cheshire.

The canal includes locks, historic buildings, and even roving bridges that allowed horses to cross the canal when the tow path changed banks. Some of the roving bridges are built with a 360-degree ramp so the tow line did not have to be detached when the horse switched sides.

Here's Bilbo Baggins showing how horses pulled boats through locks:
