Rochdale Canal

The Rochdale Canal runs from Manchester to Sowerby Bridge, passing through Rochdale. It passes over the Pennines and therefore there are many locks to negotiate. In 32 miles there are 91 locks, so not a canal for the faint-hearted. Saying that, there are magnificent views, attractive villages and lots of designated walks.
