Work is currently underway on a £2.1m scheme to improve cycling and walking access on a 6km section of the Rochdale Canal towpath between Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, which is due to be completed this winter.

The upgraded towpath, which is to form part of the Calder Valley cycle route, will add to those already constructed and under construction in the area, providing a continuous off-road route from Brighouse to Todmorden.
