Public Transport based walk with Stephen Smith. More details to follow.
My third year of playing roulette with the train timetables & reliability and our walking speed; and trying to do three walks end-on-end in a day, totalling 30 miles or so, but letting people join in and drop out through the day .
This time starting from Burnley, heading to Tod and then onto Hebden.
- The first walk will take us from Burnley to Todmorden, covering about 12 miles, 750m of ascent in about 4 1/2 hours, including a visit to the singing ringing tree, a wind farm and a coal mine
- The second walk will take us from Todmorden to Hebden Bridge, covering about 10 miles and 650m of ascent in about 4 hours, heading along the Calder Valley before trying to visit as many of its side valleys as time and distance allows
- The third and final walk will take us high up on the moors of Hebden Bridge, heading towards Haworth, before dropping down into Crimsworth Dene and Lumb falls and making our way back to Hebden station - 8 miles and about 500m of ascent in somewhere round about 3 1/2 hours.
12 hours of walking over the course of the day for those foolish enough to do the full thing, but shorter options as well. More details to follow
