This Heron waterways map covers the eastern part of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal from Foulridge to Leeds across the Pennines. Also covered are the Aire and Calder waterways from Leeds to Knottingley, via Castleford, plus the Calder and Hebble waterways from Castleford to Sowerby Bridge near Halifax. The map provides detailed information for both waterways and leisure users, and it is complimented by information panels and photographs.

This cruising and tourist map of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, the Aire and Calder, plus the Calder & Hebble Navigations is at a scale of 1:50,000. Also included are detailed town plans for Skipton, Bingley, Leeds, Wakefield, Mirfield, Brighouse and Sowerby Bridge at scale of 1:12,500.

The map includes navigation and historical information, visitor moorings, marinas and boatyards, boat hire centres, facilities for the boat user, shops and distance markers. Information for the tourist includes tourist information centres, places of interest, pubs, nature reserves, parks, churches, long distance paths, public toilets and caravan and camp sites.

For centuries the Pennines presented a barrier to cross country trade in the north. Eventually the growth of the cotton and textile industries led to the construction of a canal between Liverpool and Leeds. It was built as a broad canal which permitted wide beamed boats, capable of carrying greater loads, enabling it to be a success.

Today the Leeds and Liverpool Canal is a popular cruising route and although a lengthy canal to navigate or explore all in one visit, the settlements, canal features and ever changing landscapes along its route make it worthy of return visits by boat, car, bicycle or on foot. As with many of the canals on the system it is a canal of real contrasts, in places it is quiet and tranquil, in others vibrant and bustling. The once shabby nearly unnavigable Liverpool end has been revitalised now that the Liverpool Canal Link is open, creating a passageway through an important historic city and port, whilst at the opposite end the waterfront area of Leeds is undergoing an exciting transformation.
