We don’t know about you but turning around to head back to base during the middle of the holiday always made us feel that we were already on our way home and the holiday was coming to an end. That is why we operate from two bases on the Leeds Liverpool Canal. Apperley Bridge Marina and Barnoldswick Lower Park Marina. It is a steady 39-mile cruise between the two taking in all the best that the L&L has to offer Saltaire, Bingley 5 Rise, Skipton and much more – with the option to extend the cruise into Leeds or Barrowford as long as you return to the agreed base at the agreed time.
On booking your holiday we cannot always tell you in which direction you will be travelling or which base you will be starting from. This will be confirmed in your joining instructions which are issued 21 days prior to your holiday.
For all one way hires, secure parking is provided at Apperley Bridge Marina. If your cruise is starting at Barnoldswick you will be met at Apperley Bridge and transferred to Barnoldswick Marina where your boat will be waiting for you. Do let us know if you are bringing bikes or dogs so we can ensure we provide suitable transport. For customers choosing out & back hire, secure parking is provided at the starting marina.
We believe that our One-Way route takes in all the very best that the Leeds Liverpool has to offer – Channel 4 obviously agree as they featured the exact same route in Tim & Pru’s Great Canal Journeys. Highlights include – Saltaire UNESCO World Heritage Village, Bingley 3 & 5 Rise Locks, the wonderful market town of Skipton and the stunningly beautiful countryside known as ‘the bends’ above Bank Newton.
One way cruising has an additional cost in order to cover transportation and remote cleaning of the boat.
