Short Break Canal Holidays

Please scroll down for our 2022 Short Break Narrowboat Holidays

Water Resources Update 3rd July 2022


We have just been informed by the Canal and River Trust that due to the exceptionally dry season so far, there is insufficient water in the reservoirs to top-up the the Leeds and Liverpool canal. From 18th July the locks west of Skipton (Gargrave, Foulridge direction) will be closed until further notice.

Day hire is not affected

Holiday hires are being asked to only travel in an Easterly direction from our base (you can still sail up to Gargrave locks).

The closure Westward may be very short lived as it is simply down to sufficient rainfall to refill the reservoir and we will update our site as soon as further information is available.

Thank you for your understanding and if you have any questions, please do get in touch.
Kind regards,
Snaygill Boats of Skipton
