This companion, updated in 2017, recaptures the north for Pearson's, exploring the Calder & Hebble, Aire & Calder and Leeds & Liverpool. Featuring for the first time the deservedly popular 'Liverpool Link', and the river Aire and Selby canal. Over 200 miles of characterful inland waterways expertly interpreted to inspire discovery, on foot, afloat or by bicycle. Key places featured include Sowerby Bridge, Wakefield, Castleford, Selby, Goole, Leeds, Bingley, Skipton, Burnley, Blackburn, Wigan, Leigh, Burscough and Liverpool. The Canal Companions have been chugging along 'the cut' for over thirty years; conveying facts and figures, insight and entertainment, wit and wisdom: from Brentford to Burscough, from Shardlow to Sharpness, from Tipton to Todmorden. All manner of folk have been encouraged to explore the inland waterways using these guides, which have become as much a part of tradition as their subject matter.
