This is a walk with a relatively high grading for its length. This is because the path is not always very obvious; it has one steep descent that requires care and a ford which needs to crossed. For this I made good use of two trekking poles. It goes south from Marsden, climbing the flank of Pule Hill on paths that need some attention to follow before a road section takes you west for about 15 minutes, when a path along the west side of the fell is followed northward. After the climb to the Snow Stone the path again needs some care to pick out. There then follows the descent to a stream and the ford, where the old bridge supports can be seen. After this the walk is easy as you follow an unmapped path created between a lane and a river. This brings you to the point where the Huddersfield Narrow Canal enters the tunnel which takes it to the Lancashire side of the Pennines. There is a pub, a café and a canal museum here. The canal is then followed back to the start.

Thanks, Jim Grindle, for this lovely walk. We did it in July 2021, and everything was open and walkable.
