I have been quite a few times on here on a bike ride with my daughters. We get the train to Bingley or Shipley and then have a day cycling back to Leeds. It is just beautiful all along that stretch. Its all flat ( apart from the locks if you go Leeds to Liverpool direction, but down if you... More

I walk the canal daily and this once beautiful tranquil place has been ruined by disrespectful dog walkers who think it's acceptable to throw their dogs bagged Feces into the bushes. What's the point I hear you ask? In stooping down to scoop up your animals fresh warm crap only to them launch it into a rabbit hole! You sicken... More

We parked in East Marton and walked along the canal side for two hours then back a total of 14 miles according to my I phone app! A lovely peaceful walk great views we also saw some nesting swans! The canal locks are very interesting and it looks a very relaxing slow pace of life! Loved it!

I lived close to the Leeds Liverpool canal as a boy in Lancashire and my wife and I now live equally close in west Yorkshire. Since I have a little more time than I have had for the last few years I have decided to walk the full length of the canal in sections. We have done several short sections... More

The canal, like this comment site, attracts more walkers and cyclists than boaters but hiring a boat on the L & L is a great way to spend a few days or even a few weeks! Ok, boating can be quite energetic (the locks and swing bridges don't open themselves!) but that can be part of the boating fun. The... More

Enjoyed our Sunday walk along the banks of the historic canal. I would recommend to anyone to spend a couple of hours passing the time of day. Great for running or a picnic.

Perfect for a run or a dog walk, what a nice place, very quiet and nice to be off the main road. You must walk to Rodley for a pint :)

Took a walk along the canal path. Wonderful, on a cold but sunny day. Good to see the barges, some of them permanent homes, and the locals who inhabit them. They keep the place tidy and clean for strollers like us. Great!

This canal at over 120 miles long is the longest in UK. It was built over 200 years ago and is a linear history in itself. It also passes many historic sites along its length. The towpath provides great walking opportunities with super wildlife everywhere. Well worth a visit anywhere along its length.
