Nice walk !!!

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.

You get to see a really different side to Leeds walking by the canal, and it is an excellent opportunity to take in the historic sights of the vintage buildings and warehouses that you just can't see from the city centre. The bridges are all excellent en route also, you have the state of the art new steel footbridges mixed... More

Enjoyed a lovely walk in the sunshine along the banks of this canal. Despite being virtually in the middle of a city, the place is incredibly peaceful, with lots of bird life both in the trees & on the still water. Some of the cyclists could do with being a little more considerate, but that doesn't detract from the overall... More

We often have a bike ride from lydiate to Liverpool and have to say it's so peaceful and the scenery is a real delight. Our little one loves seeing all the boats and ducks.

You can go and walk a mile or two miles and always enjoy the stillness of the water and relax. Although I am a cyclist myself, the countless cyclists bombing along the towpaths do get annoying.
