The navigation, which is part-canal and part-river, connects the Yorkshire and Pennine canals, and provides easy access for walking or fishing in the Pennines. For instance, a long-distance footpath meets the towpath near Brighouse. Canal enthusiasts will appreciate the unusual waterways architecture, including quirky lever-operated locks.
The small towns of Brighouse and Sowerby Bridge are full of interest and local colour, while Wakefield has many attractions, including a redeveloped waterfront area, the Hepworth Art Gallery, and canoeing, sailing and windsurfing at Pugneys Country Park.
