Started at Liverpool Friday afternoon and stopped at Accrington, which is roughly 67miles. We traveled through many beautiful towns and countryside. I was naive to think the tow paths would be made up of Tarmac or gravel most of the way, it wasn't which made it harder to pedal on grass and mud, but it didn't spoil the ride or... More

To the uninitiated the concept of a Leeds - Liverpool canal would conjure up images of some murky "cut" passing through derelict industrial wasteland. And nothing could be further from the truth. I haven't walked all of the canal but the areas around Saltaire, Skipton, Gargrave, Barnoldswick and beyond are simply stunning. The canal has lots of interesting bends and... More

We took a taxi from Farsley to Skipton at 5.30am in the morning in September 2014 and left Skipton 6.00am to walk to Rodley along the canal towpath. It is a lovely walk with lots of wildlife to see along the way but be aware that there are no toilet facilities between Skipton and Bingley. Between Bingley and Rodley there... More

Left Leeds and now reached Wigan, another 3 days and I will have finished. The great days of English manufacturing are now just a memory as derelict or converted sites are everywhere. this contour canal shows the Pennines and northern hills in their true glory. fantastic views with plenty of towns to break up the day. Wonderful history and glorious... More

In days gone by the canal tow path wouldn't top your list of things to do in Leeds, but those days are well and truly in the past. After a great deal of TLC the stretch of canal from Leeds to Skipton is breathtakingly spectacular. It is hard to believe you are travelling through a major conurbation it is that... More

This is a good walk into Leeds especially since the towpath is smooth. We often go into Leeds this way as there is usually quite a lot to see. There were a lot of men fishing and we actually saw a fish being caught, that was a first. It is interesting watching the barges do what they have to do... More
