Standedge Tunnel and Visitor Centre

Accessible to all craft kept on the connected inland waterways

Silver Propeller Challenge



Visit Standedge Tunnel and Visitor Centre on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal by boat or canoe.

It has been chosen as a Silver Propeller Location due to the small number of visiting boats. A picture of your boat at Standedge would be a good proof of your visit. The Huddersfield Narrow Canal runs south-west across the Pennines from Huddersfield, joining the Huddersfield Broad Canal to the Ashton Canal. The Huddersfield Narrow Canal is 20.1 miles (32.2 km) long and has 74 locks. The summit is the highest stretch of canal in the country. It includes Standedge Tunnel which is the longest canal tunnel at 3 ¼ miles (5.2km) long and is also the deepest underground as it burrows under the Pennines.

Complete our challenge by visiting 20 locations from our list, you will receive our exclusive plaque and goody bag.
