This takes you from the village of Calverley along the tow path as part of the Calverley Millennium Way towards Rodley. A beautiful walk in lovely surroundings and on a nice day it is wonderful

Loved the tranquility and peace that was so close to the city. We felt safe walking along it, even late at night. Lots to explore.

The is like a breath of fresh air within the city of Leeds and maintained perfectly - the longboats look so serene as they lay still in the water with different types of coloured decoration on them at any one time in the moorings.
