The Huddersfield Narrow Canal Bridge No 69
The Huddersfield Narrow Canal Bridge No 69
The Huddersfield Narrow Canal runs for 20 miles between Huddersfield in West Yorkshire and Ashton under Lyne in Greater Manchester.
At its summit the Canal is the highest navigable waterway in Britain.
The canal opened in 1811 and closed in 1944.
In 1974 the Huddersfield Canal Society was formed with the objective of seeing a re-opening of the canal and in May 2001 the whole canal became navigable once more.
The canal has a total of 74 locks on its route and at this point it passes beneath bridge No 69 in Diggle.
