The Leeds – Liverpool Canal
This is the longest canal in Britain. The Leeds and Liverpool Canal is 127 miles long and, via its connection with the Aire & Calder at Leeds, offers a coast-to-coast route across the north of England.
One of the most well known stretches cuts through Wigan. The Canal here has an abundance of rich industrial and natural heritage.
There are three canal heritage walks ideal for families. Each walks starts from Wigan Pier and reaches out to Appley Bridge, Arley Hall and Leigh Bridge. All the walks can be downloaded from www.manchesterscountryside.com.
