We leave Shepley Bridge and make a sharp left turn at Cooper Bridge onto the Huddersfield Broad Canal. After an overnight stopover at Aspley Marina, we start our ascent towards Standedge Tunnel at Marsden on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal.
Passing through some beautiful towns and villages such as Linthwaite and Slaithwaite we encounter empty pounds, closed locks and the weather goes from heatwave to monsoon.
Colin stops off at Sparth Reservoir to find out why the locals went to war with British Waterways and goes for a swim in the water.
