Pennine Link is the magazine produced by the Huddersfield Canal Society for its members and supporters.

We are starting to make back issues of Pennine Link available online here for your interest and enjoyment. The first five editions were known as the Bulletin. The title "Pennine Link" has been used from edition six.

These back issues are .pdf files. Your browser should be able to display them automatically, but if not, you may need to download a PDF reader such as Foxit Reader or Acrobat Reader.
