Public Transport based walk with Angela Robinson.
A linear walk starting out from Littleborough in Greater Manchester. We head over the moors, via a Roman road, and then down past reservoirs into the Yorkshire village of Ripponden. Going through the once industrious valley, the final stage of the walk takes us on to Sowerby Bridge, where a well-deserved drink awaits.
