a short stroll or a longer hike can be taken along the towpath taking in sights such as granary wharf, rodley nature reserve and the three and five rise locks

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. There is no guarantee you will see any of the longboats that I saw because of... More

Simply amazing, and sometimes the fadtest way to walk between neighbourhoods. I like to run on it in the mornings. You can do it without any problem.

We live right next to the canal and love this place. It is well maintained and obviously goes for miles between Liverpool and Leeds. The path is shared between walkers and cyclists which can get a bit annoying, but generally it is wide enough for everyone to share. Some beautiful scenery alongside the urban sections.

The walks by the canal are great with glimpses of the past with the future not far away. The architecture is a mix of old and new as you walk the towpaths. Lovely to see buildings blend so well (but not perfect) Look out for the water taxis if your legs get tired. You`ll never go hungry as there are... More

I cycled 7 1/2 miles from the Liverpool end up to Netherton. The number of shady hoodies lurking everywhere was unpleasant. Surface was rough (on 28mm tyres) at anything over 10mph. Had to swerve to avoid broken bottles, discarded clothing, skol super tins (that was when I could see through the clouds of cannabis smoke). Some steep cobbled paths were... More

I cycled along the canal to Shipley. Very peaceful and interesting. Was able to see a range of countryside and cycle into towns if I wanted a coffee break.
