The Colne Valley Circular Walk is an interesting walk over permissive footpaths through Kirklees in Yorkshire. The walk begins and ends at Golcar and passes through Linthwaite, Slaithwaite and Marsden on the route. The path includes a waterside stroll along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, a stretch of upland walking across Slaithwaite Moor which provides excellent views of the Colne valley.
1. My wife, my dog and I did part of the Colne Valley Circular Walk yesterday (4th August) and need to report to someone that the path that leads from Campinot Wood down to Highfield is very indistinct and overgrown, some of the stiles are broken and it is generally very poor.
