The Huddersfield Narrow Canal which has been dormant for 57 years was due to reopen this week after a £30M restoration. The 32km canal will be open to boaters from Ashton-Under-Lyne in Greater Manchester over the Pennines to Huddersfield. The restoration included the Standedge Tunnel which is the highest, longest and deepest canal tunnel in Britain.
