Huddersfield Broad Canal

The Huddersfield Broad Canal, also known as the Sir John Ramsden Canal, runs for nearly 4 miles and has 9 locks. It is part of the South Pennine RIng, linking with the Calder & Hebble Canal at Cooper Bridge and the Huddersfield Narrow Canal at Aspley Basin. The Huddersfield Broad will take boats up to 14'2" wide but there is a length restriction of 57'6"  (although it is possible to get a 60ft boat in the lock on the diagonal).
