Help connect Brighouse

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Brighouse’s Slow Ways.

Firstly, the bridge leading from Lilly Lane leads to a long and uneven staircase ending in a narrow tunnel (complete with shards of glass on the floor) underneath the railway, This felt somewhat unsafe; I would have turned around if it hadn't been the middle of the day. The path down from Water Lane along the Hebble Brook begins with another uneven staircase to a very overgrown and dingy path, which then leads to what seems to be a graffiti hotspot. There appears to be a path on the route going left from Siddal Top Lane which doesn't exist (although there is actually a turning nearby that leads to a dead end and a big pile of ash). I continued on, taking the first left to meet Coalpit Lane. From Coalpit Lane until Southowram, the 'path' was very difficult to determine, as it was basically just fields....

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....

A great route - really varied; goes through south bradford, the lovely village of wyke, cuts across countryside and then into Brighouse. One of the stiles in the countryside was a bit unsturdy and the path beside the river gets very muddy in winter, but all in all, a wonderful slow way!...

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....

It was so close to getting 5 stars, but the footpath behind the industrial estate at Liversedge was full of ancient litter, it took the edge off the shine, so a good 4 stars from me....
