Bradford Canal

The Bradford Canal ran for 3 miles southwards from the Leeds and Liverpool Canal at Shipley to the centre of Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK.

It had 10 locks, arranged as one 3-rise staircase, 3 2-rise staircases and one single-rise lock.

The Bradford Canal closed to navigation in 1922.

The site features a Virtual Journey along the original Bradford Canal route.
