Brighouse lies on the banks of the River Calder, in the West Yorkshire borough of Calderdale. Like many of the region’s stone-built towns, it developed as an inland port for the trading of leather, silk, cotton and other goods during the Industrial Revolution. The old mills and other industrial buildings which dot the town and surrounding Pennine hills are reminders of the town’s heritage. An imposing flour mill has been turned into an adventure centre with the region’s largest indoor climbing gym. A pretty canal, the Calder and Hebble Navigation, runs past many Brighouse holiday cottages on its way from Wakefield to Sowerby Bridge. There is a canal basin in the town centre where picturesque traditional narrow boats are often moored.
