Where is it?
The Colne Valley (Huddersfield, West Yorkshire)
The Colne Valley lies in the heart of the Pennines, in West Yorkshire and gravitates toward the town of Huddersfield. There are many reservoirs and past quarries which have ensured numerous tracks and footpaths widely used by runners, walkers, horse riders and cyclists. Some of the finest routes in the area can be found around these reservoirs. The River Colne runs through the valley.
Tourism is widely promoted: the Huddersfield Narrow Canal was reopened in 2001 and boat trips into Standedge Canal Tunnel are available; the National Trust advertises walks on Marsden Moor Estate. http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/marsden-moor/ Recently, the award winning fantasy tale A Monster Calls was turned into a Hollywood film and was shot at the event centre and surrounding areas, well renowned television programmes such as Last of the Summer Wine, Where the Heart and Last Tango in Halifax have also been filmed here.
We are proud of the Colne Valley and its rugged beauty and it forms a key element in being able to bring you fantastic events in such beautiful locations.
