We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

I walked from Elland to Brighouse.

I found it to have an unnecessary climb out of Elland up a steep, busy A road - unnecessary because it is followed immediately by a descent, and it is easier just to walk round at town level, instead of going up and down.

My other issue is that the woodland part of the route is extremely steep, the path is narrow and rooty, and there were youngsters mountain biking down as I was going up. It felt unsafe.

I am going to give this a ‘maybe’ rather than a straight ‘no’, but for me this route isn’t really suitable, I wouldn’t walk it again.

I believe there is a better, flatter route using the towpath on the Calder and Hebble navigation, and I have added it to the Slow Ways network as Ellbri Two.
