More people are using the canal whether cruising, cycling, running or walking. The Stables Cafe, by Oddy Locks, held in a former horses stables, is a perfect place to stop for a coffee. This is an area which was once run down, derelict and smothered in graffiti. Now the area has been regenerated, developed and now a pleasant place to stop and travel through. The residents there take pride where they live including its canal.
Returning to the Leeds and Liverpool Canal will give me an opportunity to embrace the past, present and future of England's single longest canal.
Whenever I make visits to the canal, depending on what I do and if I have anything interesting to share, I'll be blogging!
