A lovely circular walk through Kirklees. The path starts off at Marsden, near the railway station, and heads towards Diggle before turning round and returning to Marsden.

You'll pass near Black Moss and Redbrook Reservoir and enjoy a canal side stretch towards the end of the route. You'll also pass the noteworthy Standedge Tunnels. The canal tunnel was opened in 1811 and is the longest and highest canal tunnel in the United Kingdom.
Your walking in the area can be extend along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal or by picking up the long distance Oldham Way which passes through the area.
