Calder and Hebble Navigation Apr 03, 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 the Halifax Arm and Salterhebble Bridge to Mirfield via Brighouse. I had to take a diversion at Brighouse to rejoin the navigation a mile or so at Anchor Pit Flood Lock. The navigation through Brighouse has its industrial feel though it has a basin with facilities and moorings for boaters. I enjoyed my walk to Brighouse as I walked on some of the prettiest navigation sketch and is so refreshing to walk on a continuous cut than on unwalkable riverside paths!

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.
