Hebden Bridge, Mytholmroyd & The Calder Valley

Mark and PJ's beer stroll
If you like your hills then this is the route for you! Unashamedly steep in places, initially this circular walk takes you from the centre of Hebden Bridge up Colden Clough to Jack Bridge.  Where the Pennine Way crosses the path a detour to the right will take you to the old footbridge and a nice picnic place in the sunshine.  At the top of Colden Clough the New Delight Inn offers you refreshment and a beer garden as well as meals or shelter from the storm (you can never tell with the weather up here). The campsite beside the Inn is a beautiful spot if you are after peace and tranquility. Once refreshed the route takes you across the hillside, past isolated farms and small settlements to the village of Heptonstall, where there are two pubs, The Cross and The White Lion to quench your thirst, and shops and cafes if it is food or icecream you are after.  From there it is steep downhill all the way back to Hebden, largely on the cobbled paths and roads that link the two settlements.  The lower part of the walk is on a cobbled road called the Buttress.  Spare a thought for the cyclists who race up here during the Walk and Ride Festival in September each year!
