Leeds and Liverpool Canal
Dog Friendly BearBoating
Relax as you cruise the waterways of the Yorkshire Moors on The Leeds and Liverpool Canal. Not only the longest canal in Northern England at 127 miles, it is also one of the most beautiful, crossing the Pennines with 91 locks and a summit level of 487 feet.
Our bearBOATING hire base is ideally placed to cruise the best the Leeds/Liverpool has to offer, exploring stunning countryside as well as the industrial heritage of the canal. Take in the delights of Saltaire Model Village and World Heritage Site. Navigate Bingley Five-rise lock staircase – considered the most spectacular feature of the Leeds/Liverpool. Cruise into Skipton – Gateway to the Dales with it’s wonderful market and fascinating castle. Cross the border into Lancashire where the canal meets the Pennine Way. See East Marton’s double bridge and follow in a Cows footsteps as you traverse the mile long Foulridge Tunnel.
As well as the breathtaking scenery, there is a wide variety of wildlife to be seen along the way. Swans, Herons, Jays, Dragonflies and if you are really lucky Kingfishers and Otters.
