Standedge Visitor Centre



It’s on everyone’s bucket list to explore deep beneath the beautiful Pennine countryside. Yet I bet you’ve never stopped to think why the Huddesfield Narrow Canal engineers decided to tunnel in such an awkward place, how it helped to fuel canal mania and our industrial revolution or what famous bit of slang it inspired that we still use today?

It's one of the seven wonders of the waterways and a great family day out. So leg it on over to our Visitor Centre at Standedge Tunnel to start your journey into the tunnel, history and beyond…
