A short canal at just 2.3 miles long, the Ripon Canal in Yorkshire begins on the outskirts of Ripon and flows into the River Ure at Oxclose Lock. From here you can join the flow of the river and paddle all the way to the River Ouse at York if you wished. There are 3 locks along this canal, which is a great place to enjoy the quiet, serene Yorkshire countryside in all seasons.
Looking for somewhere to enjoy grand countryside homes, wildflowers, grassy banks and wetland birds aplenty? This is the canal for you!
