Approaching Brighouse, the river passes through areas of industrial units on both banks.
Huntingdon Road Bridge. There is no towpath between here and Brighouse, so walkers should cross the bridge, turn left along Armitage Road and continue until they reach Brighouse Basin. Photo: Neil Arlidge.
About half a mile further upstream, the navigation leaves the river for the last time, branching right into the two Brighouse locks. From here to Sowerby Bridge the navigation is along a man-made channel.
Brighouse Lower Lock.

The navigation climbs through another lock to the upper basin and passes below this "roving" bridge with a spiral ramp on each side, which enabled horses to cross without being detached from their tow ropes.
