Alan a few years ago I went on a party cruise on the L/L and we bounced from one side of the cut to the other breaking ice and the skipper had done the run earlier in the day to make a passage through the ice

Hi
Can anyone tell me if they do organised trips along the canal - Liverpool to Leeds and return? Or just partially?
