Public Transport based walk with Gavin.
This is a joint walk with the Weekend Walkers
It's a walk that comes in 20 different flavours! We have a flat start followed by a muddy gradual ascent to overlook the Calder valley, and lots of nice cows. We contour around to the lunch stop and then on mainly good paths, to a fine pub.
