Skipton Boat Trips

The Leeds- Liverpool Canal is Britain’s longest at 127 miles and completed in 1816. It was originally used for transporting coal, stone, cloth and other cargo.

The canal’s busy industrial heyday has now passed and today it is enjoyed by many as a brilliant way of exploring the area and relaxing as the world slowly goes by.
