Description

Walk between Elland and Brighouse with only a minimum of up and down! Leave Elland via some green fields, cross under the railway line, continue to the Cromwell Bottom Nature Reserve, and then follow the Calder and Hebble navigation towpath all the way to Brighouse.
I've made this route in response to Ellbri One, which I considered unnecessarily steep in places; and steep, tricky to navigate, and in parts a little unsafe on the woodland path. It aims to combine directness with keeping the ups and downs to a minimum

Surveys

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.

An easy to walk route, with a few shallow steps leading over a bridge, and a partly overgrown field where I imagine the ground could be very wet in inclement weather. Passing through Cromwell Bottom Nature Reserve, where there is a cafe open on a Tuesday and Thursday and adjoining exceptionally clean toilets. Very peaceful walk along the canal. The roads that are walked along have very little traffic.
