The next few days of walking are much flatter and therefore easier!  What you gain in ease, however, you forfeit in remoteness. This section passes through a much more urbanised section of country.

Walking through open heather moorlands, passing several reservoirs and cutting through the busy Calder Valley. You will overnight in the lovely town of Hebden Bridge at the end of this section.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.

Great walk if you can navigate , the signs are bare minimal. The down load map from Mac is not good , no WiFi no navigation.
