Sustrans in conjuction with Calderdale Council are to make an all weather surface (probably tarmac) on the canal towpath. This will run from Warland on the Lancs boundary to the tarmac down the valley where it reached a couple of years ago (Salterhebble?).

I know there was controversy with the tarmacing when it was done on the lower stretches and the effect on vegetation etc. Does anyone know how things have resolved? We are worried in the Upper Valley because the towpath is so narrow and any worthwhile vegetation will disappear under a hard surface.
