Enjoy a day trip on the Leeds Liverpool Canal aboard Lizzie-Jean

Lizzie Jean

We are delighted to introduce David Fitch from Airedale Cruising.  Providing day trips for small groups on the Leeds Liverpool Canal is a memorable addition to your Yorkshire holiday and stay at Newton Grange.  Read on to find out more.

Hi, I’m David, the owner of narrowboat Lizzie-Jean, moored in Skipton. When I’d completed fitting out the boat I realized that she might spend most of her time moored-up because members of my family are not as free as I am to go boating.  So I started Airedale Cruising to help other people enjoy the canal world as much as I do. Many folk have always fancied a day out on a canal but are nervous about all the responsibilities involved in taking out a hire boat – so I provide leisurely Skippered Cruises involving both Lizzie-Jean and me!

Sometimes I think I could watch a fire burn all evening. Then I realise I’ve been sitting for hours not minutes and my mind has been set free to dream.

As the new year approaches somehow I can’t help but think of all those good intentions we have - things we’d love to do, but don’t always find time for. Our search for a healthy and happy lifestyle.
