Tag Cut, Elland
Aka Tag Loop.

The section of the Calder & Hebble Navigation was completed in 1770.

Andy Eccles tells me

Tag Cut formed part of the original Calder & Hebble Navigation carrying river traffic from Brighouse to Elland and beyond (and vice versa).

The navigation left the canal cut from Brighouse at Brookfoot where it entered the River Calder and travelled upstream through Tag Cut and back into the Calder at its western end, to Elland, where it again joined a canal cut near to Elland weir which took the traffic back into the Calder at West Vale.

This was the route of the navigation until the current canal cut between Brookfoot and Salterhebble was completed between 1805-1808.

Several elderly inhabitants of Rastrick recall playing at the western entrance to Tag Cut where a man named Fred Craddock hired rowing boats for use on the river

The name comes from the ghost Tag.
