Todmorden is a little Y shaped valley on the border of Lancashire and Yorkshire . Its narrow sided valley means that the river , road , railway and canal all fight for space in the valley bottom , the river is a clear loser as it is culvered 80% of its length which is why we were here...
Our first stop of the day was the great wall drain , local folk say it goes for miles , so our man Sneak nips across the merky water to bring us the truth..

So we moved on to our next little trip which in all its entirety is about 3 miles long but we just did the best bits.
Starting under the town hall...

It heads up the Burnley valley taking many shapes and forms on its way
