Reopened in 2001 after a 20 year restoration programme, the Standedge Tunnel & Visitor Centre sits on the banks of the historic Huddersfield Narrow Canal, a waterway of startling contrasts from tranquil countryside to dramatic mills.

After taking a look around the free Visitor Centre to learn the story of the tunnel, take a 30 minute boat trip into this unique piece of industrial heritage. Our guide will thrill you with tales of the folk who designed, built and worked in the tunnel.
