Colne Bridge

Dalton Bank Road, Colne BridgeRiver Colne, Colne BridgeColne Bridge is a hamlet beside the River Colne about 3.5 miles north-east of Huddersfield town centre.

The earliest bridge in Colne Bridge spanned the River Colne as the name suggests, but there are now a chain of bridges on the B6118 road leading from Bradley towards Grange Moor. These also take it across the railway and Huddersfield Broad Canal.

There is also an old 15-arch railway viaduct spanning the Huddersfield Broad Canal and River Colne between Bradley and Colne Bridge. It was built for a Midland Railway goods line between its line at Mirfield and its goods yard in Huddersfield, but the section across the viaduct was closed to rail traffic in 1937. It can still be crossed as it now carries part of the Calder Valley Greenway cycle route providing a short cut for cyclists heading from the Huddersfield area towards Mirfield.

Some of the housing which existed in Colne Bridge near the river has been cleared over the years but there are now attractive riverside walks.

A major addition to the Colne Bridge area in recent years has been the headquarters of a major maternity and baby product retail chain founded in 1981.
