Public Transport based walk with Jonathan Orriss.
After too long a gap this walk leader is back with a walk similar to his last which takes in some fine Yorkshire views on a linear traverse between Slaithwaite and Marsden. The walk will travel over a wide selection of surfaces and wearing gaiters would be advisable when wet. There are also a series of exposed locations so if the forecast is wintry then please come fully prepared - the wind will roar!
