Access to towpath at Hawksclough moved, 29th May 2005
It has been brought to the attention of the Mytholmroyd.net that the route onto the canal over the grass at Hawksclough has been bricked up and another access point created further along. Gone are the well worn stone steps - used for absolutely years by locals to gain access to the canal bank and in their place further along 4 flags have been laid. A mystery which many local people are asking questions about.
Picture one shows where the old access point to the towpath was. It seems to be a rockery now. Picture 2 shows the bricked up wall from the towpath side. Picture 3 shows what has been put in it's place further along the wall.See discussion area Land opposite the Hawkclough Bridge
