This was along the Leeds & Liverpool canal which links these 2 cities, 127 miles long, has 91 locks, and was completed in 1816.

... we had a lovely curry at Aagrah. A funny incident occurred where Nick was mistakenly recognized as the host for tv show cheaters. We got a laugh over that one!!

The next day - after breakfast - we took a stroll through Skipton and we managed to see Shakespeare's First folio. This is the first collection made of all of his plays.
