Treat yourself to a relaxing and scenic canal cruise on our traditional narrowboat Gracie. Sit back and watch the world go by in the heart of the Pennine hills in the beautiful Calder Valley. From a 40 minute scenic cruise to a more leisurely afternoon tea, Sunday Lunch or chartered cruise, you can relax and enjoy the tranquility of the canal or learn more about the history, heritage and wildlife of this fascinating area.
