History of the Canals

Reopened with great fanfare after 50 years, the rebirth of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal confounded doubters to become the outstanding success of the canal restoration movement. The campaign to restore the Huddersfield Narrow Canal took off in 1974 with the formation of the Huddersfield Canal Society. Dubbed the 'impossible restoration', there was initially little support for the scheme. Over the years, however, the Society won over the skeptics and the impossible was achieved with the canal's re-opening. The restored canal and Standedge Tunnel were officially declared open by His Royal Highness Prince Charles on 3rd September 2001.

Huddersfield Canals

The Huddersfield Narrow Canal runs for 20 miles between Huddersfield in West Yorkshire and Ashton under Lyne in Greater Manchester. The summit of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal is also the highest navigable waterway in Britain. The Huddersfield Narrow Canal boasts Britain's longest canal tunnel (Standedge Tunnel), superb Pennine scenery, and charming canal side towns. A journey along the 20-mile canal reveals a waterway of startling contrasts. Stretches of tranquil, well-wooded countryside give way to dramatic mills and historic industry - a reminder of the days when it was the shortest way of carrying goods and people between Lancashire and Yorkshire.
