Comments What a great site - we are going to walk from Leigh to Elland near Halifax via the canal towpaths, and found your site very informative. It gave us an insight as to how long it would take us to walk to Manchester, our first stop. Rochdale is our second, and Todmorden our third and final stop before the Calder and Hebble Navigation to Elland. Your photos are really excellent and gave us knowledge on what to expect on the first part of our journey. Just so you know, the £4.50 bus fare was a Day Saver and you could have used it free of charge for your return journey!! We will certainly use your site again when we tackle more of the Bridgewater canal. Thank you so much for all your efforts.

How did you find our site?    Researching the Leeds Liverpool canal
Comments Thanks so much for this website. We live in Liverpool and have begun walking the canal using your website as a guide - although we are going in the opposite direction to you. So far we have done Liverpool to Burscough. Hoping to make the next section a weekend trip. Very useful website. Hope you and your son are well - we are the same age as your son!

Comments I found the Leeds-Liverpool canal walk blog as I'm planning to do the same later this year (in stages, obviously) I've walked the Birmingham-Worcester canal plus sections of the Trent & Mersey. Your blog is an excellent resources so many thanks for taking the time & trouble to write it. I've only now found my way to this site so I shall bookmark this as well. Best regards, David

Where are you? Higher walton, Warrington
How did you find our site?    checking out Bridgewater Canal walks
Comments Glad the Stockton Heath to Runcorn walk was found enjoyable but you missed a couple of pubs at Walton (Walton Arms plus Walton Gardens café) and Red Lion in Moore- the two pubs are only a couple of hundred yards diversion from the canal towpath.

How did you find our site?    Nostalgia for past
Comments I used to live in Leigh and as a boy I loved walking, jogging and cycling along the canal bank. I remember coal barges in 2s and 3s and boys hanging on for a free ride. I remember walking on the thick ice in Butts Basin and boat rides in the summer...happy times!

Comments What a lovely idea, to walk canals and photograph your adventures! From a train somewhere near Lancaster I saw a gorgeous canal and a pretty pub with hanging baskets, called The Plough, but now I can't find out exactly where it was! Do you happen to know??

Comments Thank you SO much for such a wonderful photographic 'walk' along the Lancaster Canal. I was born near the original 'start' at the Preston end, near University of Central Lancs, so a great 'return journey' for me.

Could you do the Leeds Liverpool next please?!!!!
