Ramblers set off on a guided walk from Warley, with the Calderdale Ramblers Association

Walkers took in the delights of the great outdoors as the Calderdale Ramblers Association gave a guided trek around the area.

Led by Ginny Feeney, the group completed the six mile hike from rural Warley, and took in the Calder Valley and Luddenden Valley.

“The weather stayed nice for us and we had 19 people came along on the day,” she said. “Everyone is welcome on the walks and they do vary from different lengths and grades.”

Anyone interested in the walks can contact her 01422 847008.

Meanwhile, Hebden Bridge Walkers Action has received funding from West Yorkshire Metro to promote the 901 bus from Hebden Bridge to Huddersfield as a bus for walking.

The group will build on the successful promotion of the 906 summer bus, producing twelve walks along the route.

Richard Peters, chair of Hebden Bridge Walkers Action said: “We welcome the extension of the service to Sundays. The walks will be spread out all along the route and we hope that they will be available by the Spring”.

Details of the proposed walks are available on HBWA website www.hbwalkersaction

CROWS (Community Rights of Way Services) have received a grant from Calderdale Community Foundation to purchase tools to carry out it’s work. A group volunteers said “This grant means we now have all the equipment we need to carry out our work”.

The group has completed making a new path along Foster Mill dams, Hebden Bridge and has done major upgrades to paths down Cragg Vale, through Lee Wood, Hebden Bridge and around Ripponden, Soyland and Millbank. The work has been done as preparation for the publication of Pennine Horizons e-Trails later in the year.
