The town of Hebden Bridge is slightly off the Pennine Way route. In April 2015 a route was inaugurated to link the town with the trail, running on existing paths but with new waymarks. Trekking North, our routecards long described the direct way into Hebden that is part of the new Loop, as well as the canal-side path in the valley. Leaving Hebden we have revised our routecard to give the new Loop route via Heptonstall instead of our previous walk through Jack's Wood.

The old packhorse road into Hebden Bridge, the first part of the Loop from Callis Wood. Ahead is the church of Heptonstall that the route passes later.

A dry stone wall typical of West Yorkshire.

Grasses beside an old stone flag path, with fields on the opposite hillside marked out with dry stone walls.

We look West to the Blackstone Head area and distant moors.

Stone flags cross the path near Heptonstall.

Here are the new signposts for the Hebden Bridge Loop; three cyclists pass parked cars.

The White Lion pub in Heptonstall.

Below Heptonstall the Pennine Way passes a crag - here cimbers have left chalk marks.

For first-time visitors this area, Calderdale, comes as a surprise for the steepness and narrowness of its valleys. In some stretches, the valley floor is almost completely taken up by the road, river, canal and railway.

Hebden Bridge comes after three days on the Pennine Way and is a treat with good beer pubs and coffee shops, and several craft shops.

Please ask us about the new options around Hebden Bridge - thanks!
