The Link runs around the outskirts of Preston and flows into the River Ribble, which itself connects with the Leeds & Liverpool Canal's Rufford Branch. The Ribble Link is tidal, which governs its operating times.
It contains nine locks (seven canal, one river and one sea lock) and channel widening to allow navigation by 10ft 6in beam boats. All boats are helped through the Link so you'll need to book in advance to travel along this very popular waterway.
