The Calder & Hebble Navigation. Halifax Branch Canal.
The Halifax Branch of the Calder & Hebble canal is an approx. half mile waterway that stretchers from Salterhebble junction / locks to the Watermill bar at Salterhebble Wharf.
The canal opened in 1828 and rose through 14 locks to end at Bailey Hall close to where the train station and Eureka museum now stands. The Halifax Branch fell in to disuse with the rise of firstly railways and the road transport and the section from Salterhebble Wharf to Bailey Hall was abandoned in 1942 and this has now become a cycle / pedestrian route known as the Hebble Trail with a little evidence that it was once a canal.
There is a little support for reopening this stretch of canal to help boost tourism in Halifax and a more enlightened council may look at these proposals but sadly with limited finance, and an unambitious local authority this is unlikely to ever happen.
There are 2 albums of different photos taken on this stretch of canal. The Flickr album featuring 16 pictures and can be viewed The Flickr album features 16 pictures and can be viewed by clicking here. They can also be viewed by using the arrows on the pictures below,
