A stunning walk from Sowerby Bridge

This week’s eight-mile route begins from Station Road in Sowerby Bridge [approaching the train station]. Offering a variety of countryside – farmland, moorland, woodland – it begins with a gentle stroll along the canal towpath to get your legs in gear for the many muddy sections that lie ahead, WRITES CAROLINE SPALDING.

Woodland valleys and water holes

Set in the heart of the Calder Valley, the two woodland valleys through which this 5.5 mile ramble takes you are, in my opinion, two of the prettiest paths you can walk at almost any time of the year.

A circular route around scenic Castle Hill

The grey skies and ominous clouds that greeted me this past Sunday morning did not exactly fill me with much eager desire to go outside, and as the raindrops started to fall I decided that a short walk, donned head to toe in waterproof clothing, would suffice for the day’s activity, writes Caroline Spalding.

Beginning from a small layby north of Hardcastle Crags on the Colne/Widdop road [Ridehalgh Lane]; this week’s 12.5-mile route is a true moorland escape for a fine summer’s day out, writes Caroline Spalding.

This week’s 12-mile route is a definite favourite. Following the Calderdale Way [CW] from Ripponden to Withens Clough Reservoir and back again; it’s a beautiful but challenging walk in the current heat!writes Caroline Spalding.
