Welcome to

Walks in the Colne Valley

Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire

Rolling hills, canal and river, woods and open moorland - Slaithwaite has it all!

Slaithwaite is nestled in a valley of green pastures grazed by cattle and sheep, alongside ancient woods, reservoirs and nearby moorland on the National Trust Marsden Moor estate. There are many rewarding walks to suit all ages and abilities including the Colne Valley circular.

The River Colne and Huddersfield Narrow Canal offer peaceful and well-trodden routes to enjoy the natural environment.

Leaflets for a selection have been produced by golcarandslaithwaitewalkers.org.uk - see link below.

We will add more contributed by local people as the months go by.

You might find the OS Map OL 21 South Pennines useful to accompany the outline maps shown in this section.
