The New Year is the perfect time to get into shape.

And what better way to get fit than taking in the splendour of Calderdale on a scenic walk.

The Courier’s new walking column will showcase the best of the district’s walks.

Pick up this week’s paper to see this week’s route, which explores the beauty of the Bride Stones from Todmorden.

There is also a handy guide to organised walks coming up in Calderdale, but we need your help to unearth even more walking routes across the borough.

So whether it’s an old favourite, a hidden gem, or a route with breathtaking views of our stunning landscape, we want to know all about it - and share it with fellow readers

Please send the details, directions and photographs of your favourite walking routes via email to newsdesk@halifaxcourier.co.uk.

Here is your guide to organised walks coming up across the borough:

On Sunday, February 8, there will be a heritage walk around Savile Park.

Meet Iain Cameron to discover how the Halifax suburb developed from an open common into an important part of the town - Appleyard, Akroyd & Albert; Toffee, Tower and trams - all these crop up.

Heritage walks are generally two hours of fairly easy walking and are suitable for accompanied children over the age of thirteen. There is no need to book, just turn up and pay on the day.

Meet outside Heath Training Centre, Free School Lane at 2pm.

Admission is £3.

On Monday, February 9, there will be two walks organised by the South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

Meet at 10.45am outside Illingworth Moor Methodist Church, Keighley Road, for an easy 30-minute walk. Refreshments will be available following the walk.

And at 1pm there will be a moderate 90-minute walk from the same start point.

This walk is not pram friendly and walkers are asked not to bring dogs.

Call 01422 397340 for more information.

On Sunday, February 15, there will be a walk organised by the Calderdale Ramblers.

The five-mile walk will explore the views above Tdomorden.

Meet at 11am at Todmorden Railway Station.
