The Leeds & Liverpool canal
Welcome to the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, a beautiful waterway that connects the cities of Leeds and Liverpool in Northern England. As you travel along the canal, you’ll pass through the stunning Pennines and Aire Valley, as well as the charming town of Skipton.
The Leeds and Liverpool Canal was originally constructed in the late 18th and early 19th centuries to transport goods and commodities, such as coal, limestone, and cotton, between Leeds and Liverpool. It played a crucial role in the industrialisation of the region and is now a popular leisure destination. You can enjoy boat trips and other activities along the length of the canal.
So come and explore the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and discover the rich history and natural beauty of this iconic waterway.
