HUDDERSFIELD Narrow Canal is to be the subject of a university research project.
A study is being done to find out how more people can be encouraged to use the restored canal.
Neville Kenyon, chairman of the Huddersfield Canal Society said: "Since restoration of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal our society has been seeking a positive role that allows us to promote the canal to all types of user.
"We have commissioned this research with the intention of clarifying how people would ideally like the usage of the canal to develop."
Researchers from the University of Central Lancashire are asking people for their ideas about how it can get more people to use the canal.
It was re-opened on May 1, 2001 by Prince Charles following a £30m regeneration project by Huddersfield Canal Society, Kirklees Council and British Waterways.
A spokesman from UCLAN said: "Since it's restoration, the Huddersfield Narrow Canal has gone from strength to strength, and the society wants to keep it that way!
"If you know of any schemes or initiatives that could encourage greater usage and enhance the popularity of the canal, let us know."
