If you want it in your back garden they're building some houses on the opposite bank 😀

Dave. As a young adult about 45/50 years ago, me and a mate had a trip to Boroughbridge to fish for barbel. It was the Use or Nidd if I remember, we slept under old waterline umbrellas for almost a week. On the first night I had 5 fish to 5lb 12oz good fish then Dave, but I didn't get that I was casting towards the middle and the lead and bait ended up in the margins 20/30 yards downstream of me. I was casting out in the dark you see? Wonderful fun, good mates, Heinz beans with sausages in the same tin, for almost a week. Those days it was touch and go if we would get the car going again after such a long trip.

Been a while but the chippy in Boroughbridge was the stop off after the usual grueler above Aldwalk Bridge
and always fed the chub probably why you could never find one further down stream

I haven't found the chippy yet, did find a farm shop though, but not looked for any Pies ... there's time though ;)

We had a couple of walks along the river bank and cut but didn't stop to look over the bridge. Been a busy old day really
