The Pennine Ring

The Bingley Five Rise Locks on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal

The Pennine Ring, also known as the ‘Two Roses’ route, is an ambitious and challenging canal cruising route in England. It connects the east and west coasts of Northern England, traversing the Pennines with spectacular views. The name ‘Two Roses’ refers to the symbolic roses of Yorkshire (white) and Lancashire (red), two historic counties in Northern England.

This epic canal boat holiday adventure takes boaters along sections of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, Aire & Calder Navigation, Huddersfield Broad Canal, the Calder & Hebble Navigation, the Rochdale Canal and the Bridgewater Canal.

It travels 183 miles through 214 locks and takes around four weeks.

Route highlights include: the Castlefield area of Manchester; the 21 locks at Wigan; the Burnley Embankment; majestic Pennine scenery; Gargrave gateway to the Yorkshire Dales; Skipton Castle; the Bingley Five Rise Locks; UNESCO World Heritage Saltaire; the waterfront at Leeds; Stanley Ferry Aqeduct; the Hepworth Wakefield gallery; and Sowerby Bridge.
