The walk is as near the Wadsworth Parish Boundary as existing footpaths permit and is in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
This year Hebden Bridge Rotary Club has widened the scope of the Annual Boundary Walk by organising it into shorter sections to encourage local walking groups and families to take part as well as the long distance walkers who do the whole route.
There will be the following options:
- Start at Hebden Bridge then up on to Midgley Moor, Luddenden Dean, Limers Gate to Keighley Road, Lumb Falls, Walshaw Dean reservoirs, Widdop, Hardcastle Crags and back to Hebden Bridge, a total distance of 21 miles. This is the full Boundary Walk
- Start at Hebden Bridge and walk to the checkpoint at Keighley Road where there will be transport back to Hebden Bridge. Total distance approx 9 miles
- Start at Hebden Bridge and walk to the checkpoint at Widdop where there will be transport back to Hebden Bridge. Total distance approx 16.5 miles
- Transport provided from Hebden Bridge to Widdop and walk down the beautiful Hardcastle Crags wooded valley to Hebden Bridge. Total distance approx 4.5 miles This is the family walk
The walk takes in some of the most spectacular scenery in the South Pennines passing through the wooded valleys of Hardcastle Crags with its rocky ravines and tumbling streams and along the commanding heights of the Luddenden valley. In walkers' terms, the going is described as "moderately difficult".
