Comments Thank you for a fantastic website. We are planning to do some canal walking around Skipton in August. Your photos of the area are very helpful in giving us an idea of what to look forward to.

Comments Really enjoyed looking through your photos, especially the section at Worsley, my husband & his younger brother lived in the packet house for a while during the early 1960s being looked after by their fathers cousin & her family, while their own mother was ill. Would be interested in seeing more of Worsley area if available. Good work

Comments I also agree with a previous poster. A book would be great if your websites are anything to go buy.

Top work, keep it up!

How did you find our site?    just by surfing canal boat holidays
Comments Agree with a previous guest you should think about writing a book. Perhaps more importantly for me - have you thought about leading canal walk tours - this would be of interest to me as I usually come over to UK by myself and travel around and yes it can be quite lonely. I am a walker and would love to do some of the stretches you write about. I was born and grew up in Chorley so know the beauty of the local countryside well. Hope you continue to enjoy England's canal.

Comments Originally from Leigh, these pics brought back great memories of my chilhood. My family still live in a canalside property which I visit regularly. 2012 may be the year I buy a narrowboat & leave the rat race for a while. Keep up the good work.

Comments I've revisited your site and it really is a good un should publish a book as I've said before, it would be worth doing.
Be really good if you had links somewhere to google maps or OS.

Comments Am glad to see there will be a site for canal walking. I am 29 years old and love canal walking with my pooch Rupert. I must admit non of my friends or family are too keen on it so it can be quite a lonely past time. Would be great to see other peoples trips, stories, pictures, etc.

You may see me litter picking between the maghull and aintree branch of leeds liverpool canal, so say hi :-)

Comments You could walk the Cheshire Ring over several weekends or months by using public transport.
We travelled from Manchester, usually by train,to a start point, walk a strech of canal and then get the train back.
It is a wonderful and relatively inexpensive day out.
We now plan to walk the Pennine Ring through Rochdale, Sowerby Bridge and Huddersfield.
Hope you continue to enjoy your walking (or ambling)

Comments I have just spent two hours "walking along the Bridgewater Canal" on my computer. Thank you very much for your photography, this is an excellent Website. Keep up the good work.

I was born in Salford and lived in Flixton as a small child, before going to Australia. I have a twin brother, Pete, who lives in Urmston M/c and does a lot of walking and photography around the Manchester area. I will ask him to look at your site and make some comments on some of the "landmarks".

Comments Your walk from Stockton Heath to Runcorn: It's a shame you didn't have time to pop into Norton Priory on your walk, it has a great cafe where you could have replenished yourselves.
