Calder and Hebble Navigation Mar 12, 2017
The Calder and Hebble Navigation is 21.5 miles which runs between Sowerby Bridge and Wakefield. The purpose of the navigation is to connect with the Aire and Calder Navigation. It was originally navigable to Halifax but extended to Sowerby Bridge in 1770. The Navigation links to the Yorkshire and Pennine waterways.

I walked on the navigation from Sowerby Bridge to Elland including the Halifax Arm. I was planning to walk to Brighouse but the towpath was closed for most of the stretch between Elland and Brighouse because of the winter flooding damages. It is probably the prettiest navigation sketch I ever walked on and so refreshing to walk on a continuous cut than on unwalkable riverside paths! The stretch passes Copley,a village between Sowerby Bridge and Halifax, and then Elland.

As a walker, I'm generally not a fan of navigations which is usually made up of part-canal and part river. The walking terrain can be challenging particularly with the overgrown and muddy river beds and also the footpath diversions from rivers. This has an impact of the actual miles the walk is and also the time it takes to complete the stretch.

Further information about the Calder and Hebble Navigation can be found on the website.
