This delightful 23.5 miles route runs the length of Calderdale between the railway stations in Brighouse and Walsden. It tracks a beautifully wooded line up the Calder Valley, passing through Elland Park, North Dean, Brearley, Horsehold, Burnt Acres and Dobroyd Woods among many others. The route can be one long walk or broken down into sections, as it passes the railway stations in Sowerby Bridge, Hebden Bridge and Todmorden.
This illustrated foldout map has detailed directions for the whole route, as well as useful information about public transport, parking, local history and interesting wildlife that may be encountered along the way.
“Your piece de resistance was undoubtedly the way you strung together the 23.5 miles of the Calder Woodland Way ( I wussily divided it up into the three stages you suggested)—I loved every inch of it (even when pooped) and Spring’s definitely the best season to undertake it. ”
