On the first four Sundays in August, there will be a barge provided by Calder Navigation Society offering canal trips. The boat will pick up passengers by the Huddersfield Road Bridge near Sainsbury’s

The cruise will take you to the canal basin to turn around and then sail up to the first lock where the barge will again turn and bring you back to the town centre. The journey takes around 30 minutes

John Buxton of Ryecorn Wholefoods said: “It’s a special thank you to all our customers at Ryecorn Wholefoods and Blakeley’s Fish & Chip Take-Away and for anyone else for shopping in Brighouse during the pandemic."
