Moored along the Leeds Liverpool Canal between Barrowford Locks and the Foulridge Tunnel.
Narrowboats, such as these seen here now serve as homes to quite a number of people.
The trans Pennine Canal is 127 miles long and was conceived in the 18th Century and took almost 40 years to complete. In the 1860’s it was carrying over a million tonnes of coal per year to Liverpool. The Leeds Liverpool Canal was originally designed for broadboats and locks at the westerly end were later extended to accomodate the narrowboats.
