    Canal Boating

    Leeds Liverpool Canal

    Wigan is also situated on the Leeds to Liverpool Canal so you may well arrive in Wigan by narow boat! Whilst it doesn't have the spectacular Bingley Five Rise lock staircase section (much further upstream) it does have its fair share of locks to navigate. Starting by Trencherfield Mill, 23 locks raise the canal 298 feet above sea level in the space of 3 miles.
