Desmond Canoe Trail


The Desmond Canoe trail from Merseyside to Humberside will utilise the Leeds Liverpool canal. The trail, the longest of its kind in the UK, will stretch for 150 miles connecting Liverpool to Goole along the Leeds & Liverpool Canal and Aire & Calder Navigation. Travelling through Wigan, Blackburn, Burnley, Leeds and Skipton it will take the average paddler between five and seven days to complete., all thanks to a £1.3m donation.

Not sure this canoeist got it quite right!
