Walkers are WelcomeRelaunch of the Calderdale Way

Sunday, 21 August 2016

The Calderdale Way, a 50 mile walk, circling Calderdale is nearly 40 years old and is ready for a re-launch. So far the route has been surveyed to identify repairs that are needed and it has been waymarked to make it easier for people to find their way.

Remedial works have started by CROWS and Calderdale Countryside Service and should be completed by Summer 2017

The Calderdale Way Association who developed the route in 1977 and produce the guide has not been very active for some years and so it is going to be relaunched. There are some exciting ideas in the wind, a blog and website, and the establishment of Friends who will keep an eye on small stretches of the route.

There is an open meeting of the Calderdale Way Association on Monday September 5th at 7pm (for a 7.15 start). The meeting will be at the Works, Hollins Mill Lane, (opposite the library), Sowerby Bridge, HX6 2QG 

Richard Peters, one of the organisers told the HebWeb, "The meeting will need to deal with some admin stuff so the Association can continue to function, but we are hoping for a lively discussion to generate ideas for promoting and looking after the route in the future.

"We hope that all interested walkers will come and contribute their ideas.
If anyone is interested, but can't come on the 5th, they can contact us by emailing calderdalewayassociation@gmail.com".
