Canal Cruise for Photographers
13 Jun 2018 6pm - 8pm
The Leeds and Liverpool canal and the space and place around it, tells a story of Leeds' epic history during the Industrial Revolution and it's changing role within our city right now. The water, the towpath, the locks and the amazing architecture around it are all popular places to capture images of life on the outskirts of Leeds city centre.
We are inviting you to take a journey with us, to cruise along the Leeds and Liverpool on board our boat 'Michael Hayes'. You will have a unique view of the city from the water, providing you with the opportunity to capture images from a new perspective.
This boat trip is brought to you by Canal Connections CIC, a not-for-profit enterprise dedicated to connecting people with the waterways in Leeds.
There is a charge of £5 per person for this trip, to support the work of the organisation. Canal Connections CIC, Castleton Mill and Armley Library will be working together to organise trips throughout the summer months, culminating in a celebration of the heritage of the canal and the community around it in September as part of the National Heritage Open Days programme.
All attending will be invited to submit images for display during the September event. The journey will start at Granary Wharf at 6pm and head out towards Armley. There will be opportunities to leave the boat and explore as you go through the locks too. The trip will end close to Armley Industrial Museum on Canal Road at 8pm.
Please check times with event organiser for any last minute changes.
The cost of tickets is £5 per person.
We are unable to offer wheelchair access on this trip.
