Todmorden to Hebden Bridge Canal Walk

5 miles (8.7 km)

This walk follows a popular section of the Rochdale Canal from Todmorden to Hebden Bridge. It follows the flat towpath for just under 5 miles, so it's ideal for an easy afternoon stroll. Along the way there's several pretty locks, old bridges, historic mills and nice views of the River Calder which runs alongside part of the canal.
The route starts in Todmorden and heads east along the towpath, passing Millwood, Lobb Mill, Eastwood, Charlestown and Calderside before coming into Hebden Bridge. Here you can catch a train directly back to Todmorden or return along the towpath on foot if you prefer.
To extend the walk you could continue to Sowerby Bridge on the Hebden Bridge Canal Walk. The route visits the villages of Mytholmroyd and Luddendenfoot before arriving at Sowerby Bridge. Here you will find Sowerby Bridge Wharf, the terminal basin of the Calder and Hebble Navigation Canal, and its interchange with the Rochdale Canal.
