Waterside Walks in West Yorkshire by Peter Young
Using this waterside walks book as a guide, you can stroll along delightful stretches of the Wharfe, Calder and Aire rivers, the Leeds to Liverpool Canal, the Rochdale Canal, and the Aire & Calder Navigation. There are many beautiful lakes and reservoirs to enjoy including Ponden Reservoir, Ogden Water and Waterloo Lake in Roundhay Park. Each carefully described route varies in length between 3 and 7 miles and includes information such as how to get to the start, where to park and where to go for refreshments. The route descriptions are divided into numbered paragraphs, which correspond with numbers on the accompanying sketch maps. There are also suggestions of places of interest to visit nearby such as the Bronte Bridge and Waterfalls; the Five Rise Locks near Bingley; Harwood House and grounds, and the historic village of Saltaire.
