For the more energetic this can be a 14 night trip, but if you are wanting to take your time and see the sights then take a more leisurely 3 week break.
Heading north of the Cheshire Ring the scenery is varied, frequently rural and often spectacular.
You will experience areas of easy, lock-free cruising through the beautiful wide-open moorland of rural Pendle.
If just two people are cruising, it is best to share the large double locks with another boat if possible.
A comfortable turning point for a fortnight cruise is the appealing market town of Skipton. This is a short walking distance from the canal and a lovely market town to explore. It has a good selection of shops, a castle, museum and local bicycle hire.
