For experienced boaters
We offer you three canal holiday rings, using the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, Rochdale Canal and Leeds & Liverpool Canal. The shortest of these takes at least eleven days (Rochdale/HNC). The L&L/Rochdale is just achievable in two weeks with a very active crew. If you have three weeks you can do justice to the L&L with either the HNC or Rochdale. All these routes are immensely rewarding, but are absolutely not suited to the inexperienced, or less than intrepid. You have to get the timing right and recover from the unexpected. Please discuss your intended route with us before you book.

Mileages and times (for guidance) are for the complete ring.
123 miles 155 locks 80 hours (via Rochdale, excluding the Ashton) 128 miles 188 locks 90 hours (via Huddersfield, including the Ashton)
This combines the Cheshire Ring with a one way trip across the Rochdale or Huddersfield Narrow. Either route is achievable by a dedicated crew in two weeks. Only available with Cornwall.more
