The Peak Forest and Macclesfied Canals

Two relatively short, relatively low-profile canals, linking the majestic Pennine waterways with the much-boated cruising rings of the midlands.  Both flirt decorously with the Peak District, with stone walls, handsome trees, and grand green hills overlooking the canal.

Both have a lower and an upper level, separated by a single flight of locks in the middle, lending a pleasing symmetry to our journey.

John joined us for the Peak Forest; Mum and Dad for the Macc.
