A three-legged non race Part 1: Wind

Public Transport based walk with Stephen Smith.

The morning walk of today's trio, climbing out of Littleborough to the North West, going across Shore, Inchfield and Todmorden Moors, wending our way through the wind farms that are now scattered across all three moors, before crossing the Calder Valley at Cornholme and walking to Todmorden half way up the hill along a mix of tracks, paved footpaths and moorland.

It's not a long walk, but we need to get it done briskly in time for the second walk of the day. We'll have to navigate a BMX track, walk past the entrance to a long abandoned drift mine and, if we're lucky, the dinosaur will still be there.

Housekeeping: Walk leader meeting at walk start. No toilets at station or on the route. Start and finish of walk on the same rail line and both stations have good car parks.

Meet & Travel arrangements - Public Transport

We’ll use public transport from Manchester to travel to and return from the walk start/end.
Itinerary is below - click station links for map and further information.

07:50: Meet at Manchester Victoria for the train at 07:55. You will need to purchase a ticket prior to meeting.

Suggested ticket:

If just doing the opening walk, a Todmorden day return is £9.20. If doing the first two, or even all three, walks, you'll want a Hebden Bridge day return which now commands the princely price of £10.20. But a railranger (£6.80) and Littleborough to Todmorden (£4.00) or Hebden Bridge (£4.60) might work out better if you're travelling into Manchester or have a fetish for unusual train tickets. 

07:55: Train departs for the walk start at Littleborough train Station.

08:24: Walk starts at Littleborough train Station.

Return from Todmorden Station. Aiming for the 13:15, but there are four trains an hour from Tod to Manchester

Waypoints: Dobbin Hill, Rough Hill, Todmorden Moor, Harley Wood Slack, Todmorden (OL21)
