Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Angela Robinson.
A linear walk in the Calder Valley. Includes a few steady ascents but hopefully some great views. We'll head along the Calderdale Way and Centenary Way with views across to Stoodley Pike monument. After a visit to Bridestones Rocks we'll descend into Todmorden. Here there's the option to visit the Beer Festival at Todmorden cricket club before catching the train home.
