Calderdale and South Pennines

Calderdale and South Pennines

by: Paul Hannon
The South Pennines is a fascinating area centred on its major valley of Calderdale, which along with the Ryburn, Holme and Colne Valleys presents a diverse region of unrivalled character. This book contains 25 great walks, well-illustrated and concisely described, which lead you through some stunning landscapes of woodland, riverbank, gritstone edges, canal towpaths, reservoirs and moorland.

Explore the hugely popular Hardcastle Crags, Marsden Moor and Stoodley Pike, the Huddersfield Narrow and Rochdale canals; and walk through history at Castle Hill, Standedge and Shibden Dale. Discover the natural delights of the Bride Stones, Mag Dale, Norland Moor and Blackstone Edge, and the charms of Cragg Vale, Meltham Moor, Marsden Clough and Wessenden. Amble around the characterful little towns of Hebden Bridge, Holmfirth, Marsden and Todmorden, and colourful stone-built villages such as Heptonstall, Luddenden, Ripponden and Holme.

The book has a short introduction and an area map showing the walk locations. Each of the walks begins with a panel giving distance, start location with grid reference and post code and the relevant OS Explorer map sheet number. A summary of the main features of the walk follows this and is printed in burgundy italics to distinguish it from the following detailed route finding text. Each walk is presented on a two page spread which includes an outline map of the route and a colour photograph.
