At the top of the Salterhebble locks, this branch heads towards Halifax.
The branch canal once climbed all the way to Halifax, to a basin behind the railway station. Now, the branch only runs a third of a mile to The Quays at Exley.
Back to Salterhebble junction. The canal from Brighouse emerges from the Salterhebble Locks on the right. The branch towards Halifax runs under the road bridge. The canal towards Sowerby Bridge is behind the viewer.
Looking back to Salterhebble junction through the railway bridge.

Looking back to Canal Mills Bridge. There were mills on both sides of the canal here. On the left the mill has been replaced with housing. On the right only the wall alongside the towpath remains. Photo: Neil Arlidge.
