Unlock the Waterways

The Leeds and Liverpool Canal, which is the longest canal in the country, runs through the heart of the Chorley borough and once upon a time was the lifeblood of the industrial revolution-carrying supplies to and from the mills. Today it is transformed. Rich in wildlife, the canal has some lovely tow paths to explore and you can even hire a narrow boat and take a trip on the water yourself.

Canal Boat Cruises

Set against the historical backdrop of Highton Tower, Canal Boat Cruises of Riley Green, offer you the chance to drift along the canal in total relaxation. You can enjoy the camaraderie of other boaters and take in the beautiful surrounding countryside with the option of canal holiday hire, group cruises or cruise and dine experiences and events such as afternoon tea, lunch, tapas and more.
