Can leave the towpath to the right at lock 4E before going under the bridge; turn left to head towards town. Can also walk along the pavement of Manchester Road as a more direct, but less traffic-free, means of completing the last mile....

Keeping to the route south of Newsome was a bit of a struggle, but this shouldn't cause problems as there are lots of alternative paths....

Mostly great views and lovely countryside, with a bit of old urban streets and road walking that take it down from 5 to 4 stars. It's worth going along the main road (which has a pavement) to get to the quiet road into Kirkburton, with nice views of the valley. The final section into Skelmanthorpe starts with another pleasant descent through fields , then a farm lane and finally the road....

Unfortunately the route as plotted has a major problem as it passes along a lane past houses which has no right of way. (between SE1251013497 and SE1269313605) This necessitates a detour back uphill in the wrong direction, before 500m along a busy main road...
