I live 10 minutes' walk from Rodley canal and often enjoy a quiet walk down there. It is busier on sunny days and at weekends or cycling-into-Leeds-for-work times.It is a good way to get to Rodley Nature Reserve, whose entrance is across one of the canal bridges. A good walk is from Kirkstall towards Rodley. Near to Kirkstall Abbey and... More

The canal offers stunning views and makes even more beautiful photographs. A lovely stroll is just the thing!

Hubby and I took a lovely, blustery, brisk stroll on the canal from Crossflatts to the Marquis of Granby at Riddlesden and then back again. Wanted really to post about the newly refurbished Marquis but they're not on Trip Advisor ... had a lovely pint (or two ... it is Christmas after all ...) by the open fire. They had... More

I Really enjoyed a 3 hour walk on a length of canal I've not walked before. Started at Parbold, West Lancashire where there is parking right by the canal for about 10 cars. It was a nice peaceful sunny day with very little traffic on the canal or people on the tow path. I stopped at Burscough which is a... More

This is a beautiful, calming lovely walk wherever you may join in Leeds. As you get past Kirkstall. You can begin to see the city. Very enjoyable walk and I really liked the boats, very long and narrow.

From Saltaire along canal to the bridge over the river then go right down the path at the side of the River Aire or further along canal over the canal bridge and come back through the woods (Hirst Wood). Lovel walk. Takes about 1 hour...

Started training to walk the 2016 London Moonwalk. Needed somewhere accessible, safe, measurable and consistant to train. Just love the canalside. We are fortunate that we are not to far from the Leeds Liverpool Canal. Have walked in varing stages from Leeds to Gargrave and recently added a bit extra towards Wakefield along the Transpenine Trail. My husband has even... More

Longest canal in the UK and a great walking location. Always remains close to town and city locations for most of it's route throughout west Yorkshire and even though you would think that you were miles away from any noise or urban sprawl, it still remains closely connecting to towns and villages that criss-cross on similar rail and road routes....

I have walked the Leeds and Liverpool towpath for many years. never get bored of the changing scenery. Just a mile from the city is Oddy locks, a double lock where we can watch the boats going up and down. There is now an excellent tea room, get a cuppa and a piece of cake, take it over onto the...
