Our journey of over 700 miles will take about 2 months to complete. We will go west from our home moorings in Riddlesden along the Leeds & Liverpool to Leeds. Then along the Aire & Calder, Huddersfield broad and narrow canals through Standedge tunnel and onto the Maccelsfield, Trent & Mersey, Coventry and BCN canals to the top of the Thames (Grand) ring at Hawkesbury junction and on down the Oxford canal to the River Thames going east to the junction with the Grand Union canal at Richmond.
