Wonderful stretch across the Pennines with historic value. Great for family walks, cycling and getting some fresh air. Have to mark it down one for the amount of loose dogs running about and owners not caring too much or picking up their faeces.

Let your mind wander back in time whilst you amble down this canal. Over the years so much has happened on this stretch, from industrial transportation to tourist intrigue. Worth a stroll whenever you visit Leeds.

The start of the canal to Liverpool is just south of the railway station. Once dark and crowded it has been opened up and the canal basin and old dock area is surrounded by heritage buildings, fine cafes and restaurants and the famous Temple Mill. this is a developing area so go visit and watch how an old ignored rundown area of doused foundries, mills and workshops is being transformed.

Barnoldswick is placed on the Leeds Liverpool Canal, just beyond the North Yorkshire border. It is a charming town, full of nostalgia and talented, friendly people. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and peaceful all year round. Life is slower here people have time to welcome strangers and are proud to share the history of their town. There are numerous walks, flat and more challenging. Weets hill offers stunning views towards Ingleborough and Settle, on a clear day you can even see Blackpool Tower. On the canal you can spot Kingfishers, Cormorants, Swans and reportedly Otters if you are lucky.

Leeds - Liverpool canal in the longest waterway in England connecting old industrial city of Leeds with sea port in Liverpool. Construction of its 127 miles passing through Yorkshire Dales, Pennie countryside and East Lancashire took 46 years. First works on this route started in second half of 18th century and entire complex of locks, moorings, wharfs and bridges was completed in 1816. Myself, on one windy Saturday, I've done humble twelve miles long walk along the canal between Leeds and Rodley. Experienced hiker should be able to do entire length within 6-7 days, I reckon. My short route took me from Granary Wharf in Leeds and led me to meadows beyond Rodley. On my way, winding here and there among old factories and mills of Leeds before it ran through the meadows of Yorkshire, I walked by Tower Works, Canal Mills and Armley Mills. In some of its sections canal ran parallel to the River Aire, so I could see her glistering waters between foliage. At the height of the Kirkstall one could see the ruins of an old Cistercian abbey between the trees. There weren't many amateurs of early morning walk on that day. I met just few anglers sitting here and there along the waterway watching floaters. Around the noon, path running along the canal got swarmed with runners, cyclists and other walkers. Pity, that all the museums located along the canal were closed. Still, it was nice and refreshing stroll, and absolutely free of charge.
