Public Transport based walk with Stephen Smith.
Walk Leader meeting at walk start
A slightly shorter walk in which we will find a dam with a hole in it, part of air traffic control and the attractively named Hell Hole rocks.
We head off through Todmorden park before a swift climb and even swifter descent back into the Valley. We cross the road and start climbing, and climbing and climbing until we reach the Bride Stones (after which is named a local brewery). This first third of the walk involves more than its fair share of steep hill walking.
The rest of the walk is relatively easy, dropping down into the upper reaches of the Colden Valley, first on the southern and then northern flank, before skirting Heptonstall and dropping into Hebden Bridge.
