Route Outline

As always Calderdale offers you here a multitude of small, stone-walled enclosures and secretive tracks, its unmistakable architectural vernacular, its slight sense of being "unfinished" (as neat Wharfedale or Upper Airedale are "finished") the constant reminder that this was once a dense hive of mills and industry: spinning, carding and weaving. Like the mill workers of old, you have to work hard to gain reward here; but the views from the tops, above all on the return leg, are spectacular.
