TV programme wants unusal canal stories from people who live, work on holiday on the Leeds to Liverpool canal

CentiniA new series of ‘Locks & Quays’ is currently in pre-production and due to begin filming this summer. In this series we will be making the journey coast to coast from Hull to Liverpool. The 10 episode journey, due to be shown on ITV1 in the Granada & Yorkshire regions, will take viewers along the Aire and Calder Navigation and join the Leeds – Liverpool Canal to it’s end in Liverpool. The series will celebrate the canal communities, the holiday makers and the people who make their living afloat along this stunning stretch of the British Waterways. We will embrace the local heritage and history along the route and the spectacular countryside and signs of urban renewal as we travel through the villages, towns and cities built around the canals.

As part of the series we will of course be featuring Saltaire the surrounding areas along this stretch of waterway and we are keen to hear from the people who live, work or holiday on these canals and those who enjoy the canals from the towpath, so we would like to hear from anyone who might have an unusual canal story or an interesting insight into an aspect of local history along this route.
