This booklet aims to describe the River Calder catchment, located within the EA North East Region. The River Calder rises on the Pennine Moors west of Todmorden. It is predominantly an urban river flowing through the West Yorkshire conurbation towns of Halifax, Brighouse, Huddersfield, Dewsbury and Wakefield, before joining the River Aire at Castleford, some 87km from its source.The name Calder comes either from the early British meaning hard or violent waters or stream, or possibly from the Celtic, meaning river of stones.
