A good traffic free nature walk

A walk from any point on the towpath is a good place to excercise either walking or cycling. Hire boats from Silsden and explore the Yorkshire dales from the Silsden/Skipton area

My teenage daughter and I cycled the section of the canal from Gargrave to beyond Blackburn, finishing up at the boatyard Inn at Hoghton. The 45 mile section was beautiful in parts (eg Gargrave to Foulridge) and fascinating in others (Burnley and Blackburn). It took around 6-7 hours of gentle cycling, punctuated by a nice lunch at the cargo bistro... More

Havent visited the canal for several years and impressed with my find. We visited on a Sunday - quite busy near Rodley area. Several cafes from Rodley to Shipley to enjoy. Flat for pushchairs and fab for bikes. When busy dogs may need to stay on the lead.

The Leeds Liverpool Canal (Leigh Branch) starts in the centre of Leigh, Lancashire at a place called Leigh bridge, St Helens Rd, Leigh. It comes together with the Bridgwater canal on the east side of the bridge. These days the canal is used for pleasure craft but in days gone by it was used mainly for taking coal from Bickershaw...

We set off from Rodley in the direction of Leeds city centre and turned back before reaching the centre. A good seven mile walk along clean and well surfaced tow-paths. The weather helped make the walk even more enjoyable. Planes going into land at Leeds Bradford airport added another dimension to a lovely gentle walk

It's a nice walk and some nice views , just don't step on any needles when you get to the armley area. Under the bridge by armley town street is the worst part.

a day on the Tiger Lily from Barnoldswick Lower Park Marina - big enough for 10 people, simple to operate, but the best reasons for choosing this company rather than the Skipton based ones we have already tried are the stunning country side (truly, even though the Aire Valley from Skipton is lovely), with waterfowl, herons, kingfishers, the excitement of...

Wether you're boating, cycling, walking, fishing, running, photographing or just sitting on the Leeds and Liverpool canal it's a fantastic place to be. In order to fully appreciate the natural beauty and wonder of this canal you have to frequent it often and feel each season and the dawn and the sunset and take a moment to visit some of... More
