Public Transport based walk with Angela Robinson.
A walk through the Calder Valley, heading out from Todmorden over the Pennine moors. We will call in at the Stoodley Pike Monument, rebuilt 165 years ago at the end of the Crimean War. Climb the 39 steps for the best view around (hopefully!) We head over moorland and into Cragg Vale (weather dependent), home of the Cragg coiners who came close to wrecking the currency of 18th century Britain. We end the walk heading down into Hebden Bridge, winner of Best Town in the Britain and Ireland Urbanism awards.
