Walk Description

A peaceful and tranquil walk through the industrial heartland of Huddersfield’s past. The walk starts in the centre of the town and winds it’s way up to Bradley. Make sure you look out for all the former warehouses and canal building as you work your way on the canal. You can’t miss the amazing engineering of the Turnbridge lift bridge, it’s a marvel of the age! Towards the end of the end of this excursion you’ll come to the 18th century Colne bridge another fine example of the period engineering still in use today.
