Where can my disabled dad see a canal?
My dad has recently become disabled and needs a wheelchair. So wherever we want to take him by car, needs to have wheelchair access.
Do you know of anywhere within driving distance of say one hour from Newcastle upon Tyne where he can see the canal, preferably with a pub nearby and/or disabled toilet facilities? He loves the open water and now he’s become disabled it’s something he and my mam can no longer do as he can’t drive now and everything needs to revolve around wheelchair access and a toilet.

There aren’t many canals that far north but how about Ripon, with a pub and accessible trip-boat?
