Virtual Journey along the Barnsley Canal

The Barnsley Canal ran for about 16 miles between Wakefield and Barugh, west of Barnsley, England.

It is not open for navigation, although some sections are in water.

The "journey" runs from north to south, but includes views of the canal looking in either direction.
