Leeds to Hessle
60 mile walk linking the Leeds & Liverpool Canal to the East coast

This 60 mile route is not a recognised path, and we are therefore only offering it as package. It is meant as a continuation of the Liverpool to Leeds Canal Path to make it possible to walk from Coast to Coast on reasonably easy terrain. Much of the route follows the River Aire, and the Trans Pennine Trail, and there are both built up, industrial areas and nature reserves, so the experience will be very mixed
