'B' Walk from Hebden Bridge 2017

Walk Leader: Gwyn Jones
Walk Distance: 8 miles
Total Ascent/Descent:

A walk through woodland, fields and open tracks. Most tracks are stony – fields are sometimes muddy. 

There are 2 main ascents – one before lunch and one after. But we will have time for breathers (for me if not for you). HB is appx 350 ft asl – the highest point on the walk is appx 1000 ft asl. From HB we walk north to New Bridge where we pick up the Calder Way and climb up to Pecket Well. Here the walk goes across fields and is fairly level, but there are a few stiles. We then drop down into Crimsworth Dean where there is a pretty waterfall. (As we descend, watch out for Toads). At the bottom we cross the bridge and climb up the other side to reach a track which takes us all the way down to New Bridge and on to HB
