Where can my dis­abled dad see a canal?

Canal Boat - - Letters -

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?
