Just Milling Around

Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Mike Dent.

7.6 mi


Parts of the route are quite muddy - please dress suitably.

Skirting around the top of Broadbottom, we drop down into some woods - which look pretty but tend to be muddy, so you may want to bring the gaiters. We then head past Botham's hall and the ruins of a woollen mill then a cotton mill before passing a still-in-use cotton mill. From there we head along the river to (can you see where I'm going with this?) an old water mill before returning via a disused railway to The Green Mill (Harewood) for a pint - or 568.26 mils.
