Leeds to Liverpool canal

Canal barge

The Leeds to Liverpool Canal meanders through our Borough and the Church area of Accrington is the central point on this historical waterway. It is marked by a small plaque, jetty and picnic tables at Church. From this point it provides easy access to other parts of the Borough including Altham and Rishton, without the worry of cars and lorries for the cyclist. The views from the canal towpath around Altham are stunning looking out towards Pendle Hill and beyond.
