The Calder & Hebble Navigation. Lister Bridge to Salterhebble Railway Bridge.
This collection of pictures was taken over a 4 year period on the Calder & Hebble Navigation canal between Lister Bridge (8) over the canal and Salterhebble Railway Bridge (9). This is one of the shortest sections between bridges running to only 1 1/4 furlong (0.15Miles / 0.25 kms). Lister Bridge used to be the access for the nearby water treatment works but has long since closed off to traffic, now offering a small track with access from the A6026 Wakefield Road from the canal path. Salterhebble Railway Bridge carries the Calder Valley Line connecting Halifax with Brighouse.
There are a total of 15 pictures taken on this stretch of Canal. 10 available to view here or on Flickr with an additional 5 exclusive to Clickasnap via the links below the album.
The following links open in another window and take you to pictures that can only be seen on Clickasnap. Please take a moment to view and share as this help's to support my photography.
