Marsden & The Colne Valley

The Colne valley's a special place to discover, whether you're heading for the hills or exploring the historic Huddersfield Narrow Canal, which disappears abruptly into the Pennines at Marsden. (Standedge tunnel is the longest and deepest canal tunnel in Britain and so-called 'hikers' tickets' can sometimes be had from British Waterways for trips through the tunnel)

The Colne Valley Circular Walk gives a taste of the valley, whilst the Kirklees Way is close at hand, too. The Pennine Way crosses the National Trust's Marsden Moor, a 5500-acre estate which the Trust describes as a windswept ecological paradise.
