“No Go Area in Leeds”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Beware. Around the Bramley Fall woods area it has been turned in to a No Go area. Pedestrians, Boats, Barges been attacked broad daylight. People have been killed around here. Told by boat users their advised not to stop until they get to Rodley. Police, LCC and MP Rachel Reeves unwilling to act. Shame on them. Shame people canot use. I had previously wrote this was a paradise in the middle of Leeds. Use at your peril.

“Take a walk feed the ducks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Recently walked the maghull part with wife and baby. Fed the ducks at maghull square before walking to the running horses for a pint. Good walk, flat and wide for the pram.

“Snaygill Boats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We just spent a week cruising this canal after we hired a boat from the lovely little Snaygill Boatyard near Skipton. The staff were so helpful - we'd not done narrowboating before but we need not have worried. It was great fun.
We travelled down the stunning Bingley 5 Rise Locks (good fun but be prepared for long waits as boats take half an hour each way so if you arrive and find boats ahead of you there could be a 2 hour delay in your trip!!).
Make time too to go to the lovely Saltaire and the David Hockney gallery in the stunning old mill.
