For experienced boaters
This year, we offer you one canal holiday ring, using the Huddersfield Narrow and Rochdale Canals. This takes at least eleven days. The Outer and Northern Pennine Rings, which combine either the HNC or Rochdale with the L&L will return for 2021, after repairs to Figure of Three Locks near Wakefield. Please ask for details. All our rings 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.
Distances and times shown (for guidance) are for the complete ring. Information we provide about specific waterways or suggested routes is for general reference only. Please see more about route availability.

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
