I have walked from Armley Industrial museum down to Rodley on many occasions, it is wonderful and peaceful. There are people riding bikes, people walking dogs, people just walking. No better way to spend an afternoon.

I have had two holidays on this canal and want to do the whole length. It is one of the most scenic in the country and fantastic for those interested in industrial history.

The first 10 miles from Leeds is well maintained and fine to do on road bikes. The surface then becomes uneven and pot holed so we turned round. Pleasant tea shop on the towpath, about 7 miles from Leeds called the little red café.

How can you review a canal which runs from (guess?) Leeds to Liverpool. Most of it is interesting - places like Bingley 5 rise and East Marton double bridge fabulous - the towpath walks flat (surprise!) and frequently delightful. There are few black spots where...More

This is great to be here and think of all the history that goes with it. We often walk into Leeds on the canal as it's very pleasant. You must try it.
