From Hebden Bridge to Sowerby Bridge

Hebden Bridge Travel Blog

I had a wish to walk whole of the Rochdale Canal and one day in July I decided to pursue this.

I did the 5.5 mile canal walk from Hebden Bridge to Sowerby Bridge (just after Tuel Locks and will walk the remaining yards when I plan to walk the Calder and Hebble Navigation) which took in Mytholmroyd and Luddenden Foot. I had nice weather (though a bit too warm at the end) to guide me. The canal stretch is interesting; scenic with historic links in places but in some places rather overgrown and could do with some tender loving care (particularly between Mytholmroyd and Luddenden Foot). The Rochdale Canal is aligned along the main roads and railway which makes easy planning for starting and finishing the walk.  Still 25+ miles to go!
