Calder - Brighouse To Salterhebble
During the 1950’s, a resident of Lower Edge, Fred Craddock built a wooden jetty at the entrance to the packhorse bridge and from there, he hired rowing boats to members of the public. There are still people around to this day who fondly remember ‘Craddock’s Subs’ as they were affectionately known. This was due to the fact that most of the boats leaked and along with the oars, the rowers were issued with a ladle can to empty the water out thus preventing your feet from getting wet.
