Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Siobhán Burke with Bronte the dog.
Walk leader to meet at walk start
As the name suggests, the basis of this walk is to take in the delights of Mossley, which mainly consists of the wonderful views out to the pennines. And there's no better place to experience these views than the Rising Sun pub in Top Mossley. So, we'll out from the station and cross Scout Bridge and end out along the Huddersfield canal, before joining the bridle path. We come out at the Royal George pub at the boundary with Greenfield before crossing the valley and heading uphill to the Rising Sun. If we're quick, you might be in time to order one of their delicious home-made pizzas.
