Aire and Calder Navigation
This canal, part of the waterway from the North Sea to the Irish Sea, still plays a role in commercial shipping. Meeting these ships is part of the adventure on this not terribly romantic river/canal. River River Aire is quite often flooding. One might therefore have to wait for better conditions.
