The South Pennine Ring has been made possible by the recent re-opening of the Rochdale Canal and the Huddersfield Narrow Canal in what must now be regarded as “The New Canal Age”. The Ring, which also includes The Ashton Canal, Sir John Ramsden’s Canal and the Calder & Hebble Navigation, takes us across the Pennines from Central Manchester to Huddersfield, follows the Calder Valley to Sowerby Bridge, and brings us back across the Pennines to Manchester. It takes us through the longest canal tunnel in the world underneath Standedge Moor. This is a fascinating part of the trip in which your boat is cocooned in rubber and towed through the tunnel by an electric tug in a convoy. We travel through some of the most spectacularly scenic canal landscape in Britain ….. and through the heart of Britain’s former textile industry. All these scenes are faithfully captured for you on this video so that you can experience the delights of the trip – without having to do the 107 wide locks and 92 narrow locks yourself! This well researched video is another must for the serious boating enthusiast.
