Leeds and Liverpool Canal Sep 24, 2017
Leeds and Liverpool Canal is Britain's longest single waterway canal. The 127 miles stretch starts from Leeds, cross the Pennines, and finishes in Liverpool. The canal runs through Aintree, a village not far from Liverpool City Centre and famous for its racecourse which stages the infamous Grand National every year since the 19th Century.

It was built in 1816, engineered by John Longbotham (with involvement from James Brindley and Robert Whitworth). The aim of the canal was to transport good quickly and economically from city to city. Today the canal is used for leisure purposes such as boating, walking, running and cycling on the towpaths.

Since June 2017 we have completed walking on the whole canal from Leeds to Liverpool.
