This walk takes in some fine scenery, similar to that of Heptonstall and Hebden Bridge further up the valley. Firstly we leave the small town of Mytholmroyd along the Rochdale Canal before climbing up through small hamlets into woodland and along moorland with good views of the valleys of Luddendean and Calder on a nice day. We largely follow the Calderdale Way and the route involves climbing both sides of the valley, with a very steep ascent at one stage. Good boots are needed.
Travel directions: Car: Take the M65 to Burnley and exit Junction 9. Follow the A679 and the A646 towards Halifax. This will take you into Todmorden where you need to turn left at the roundabout in the centre of town to go to Hebden Bridge and then straight on to Mytholmroyd. Here there are road works, so please allow a little extra time for your journey. We’ll meet near the canal bridge on Midgeley Road where there is on-street parking. You’ll find Midgeley Road just opposite the church and directly before the Russell Dean showroom where there is a sign pointing out the clog factory. Follow this for a short distance over the canal and park there if possible.
Train: Mytholmroyd is also on a direct line from Preston. The journey takes an hour and the station is near the church.
