September Adventures

After gearing ourselves up to tackle the Leeds Liverpool canal, we discovered BW were doing maintenance on one of the locks, and had no official completion date, so we've decided to take another route to get to our Sheffield winter resting place. We're going to travel down the Bridgewater from Manchester, onto the Trent and Mersey, along the Mecclesfield, do a detour to the Peak District canal, then up the Huddersfield canals (narrow and broad), along the Calder, a detour up the Aire to Leeds, back down again, via Castleford to the South Yorkshire Navigation...down to Doncaster....then up the Tinsley flight to the top of the hill at Sheffield.

We havent done most of these canals, so it's going to be a learning curve...with hopefully lots of blog updates and photos.
