Walkers and Canal Boaters using the Huddersfield Narrow Canal have been getting a real taste of the wildlife as hopping along the towpath in full view was an escaped wallaby.

It is the second time that the wallaby has given locals a shock.

It recently ventured into Marsden a couple of miles.

Locals say a wallaby escaped from a nearby farm a couple of years ago and this could be the same creature still on the run.

You may not spot a wallaby in the wild on a Canal Boat Holiday but why not moor up and visit a local zoo or wildlife park.

From our Canal Boat Holiday base at Hliperton on the Kennet And Avon Canal visit Bristol Zoo and gardens.

To get up close to the sharks and turtles go to The Sealife Centre near to Gas Street Basin in Birmingham.

This can easily be reached in a few hours from our Canal Boat Holiday resort at Alvechurch.

Drayton Manor is not only brilliant for its theme park but there is also a Zoo there visit both whilst you are on your Canal Boat Holiday.

If you are doing the Grand Ring on your Canal Boat Holiday stop off and visit Woburn Safari Park and Woburn Abbey.

Our resort at Anderton is a perfect place to start your Canal Boat Holiday if you want to visit Chester Zoo or the Blue Planet Aquarium at Ellesmere Port.
