The height of the canal in the centre of Hebden Bridge is creating a dam-like effect. This serves to keeps flood water in the centre of Hebden Bridge and does not allow it to drain away across Calder Homes back into the River Calder. One suggestion might be to create a large drain or underpass beneath the canal to take waters away from the centre. Additionally, the drains around the town need to be kept unblocked.
