Ever Decreasing Circles Part 1: Dodging the Building Site

Public Transport based walk with Stephen Smith.

14.0 mi


Please note revised train time and earlier walk start time at Littleborough

The first part of a three part walk, in which we will encounter a dinosaur, navigate our way through a windfarm construction site and try to avoid a bmx track.  

Starting from Littleborough we climb the hill staying to the western flank of Crookmoor and just on the shoulder of Rough Hill before picking up the Rossendale way and heading towards Clough Head and Todmorden Moor.

We'll go past the head of a former coal mine and drop down Tower Clough, cross the River Calder at Cornholme and then climb the hill again to find the Calderdale way before the drop back down to Tod town centre.

Although this walk is only 14 miles, we'll need to be walking quite brisk to make it to Todmorden in time for the start of the next walk and for people to *briefly* take the opportunity to top-up on refreshments in Tod. Walk Leader meeting at walk start.
