Public Transport based walk with Sarah Peppiatt.
Walk Leader meeting group at Walk Start (Hebden Bridge)
Taking full advantage of the long June days this is part 1 of a 2 part walk that explores the valleys and moors east of Hebden. Get up early for part 1 and enjoy the rest of the day in the pub; give yourself a lie in and join the second half or take the challenge and do both parts (27.5 miles and 1800 metres of ascent!)
