Public Transport based walk with Stephen Smith.
Another one of the series of marathon length walks, this time an approximately circular route, from, Hebden Bridge towards Burnley before dropping into the Valley at Cornholme, heading over to Littleborough by tacking close to the county boundary and then a final leg up to Blackstone Edge and over the relatively easy moorland route back to Hebden. Inevitably, we'll need to be going more than brisly, but there is a bailout point round the 18 mile walk when we pass close to Littleborough station.
