Dobroyd Castle – A Calderdale Heritage Walk SOLD OUT

Price: £5

Event description


By kind permission of the owners, this afternoon walk goes to, around and inside the striking ‘Brass Castle’ built above Todmorden by John Fielden in 1869. It includes the house, walled garden and stable block with details of their history and the family. Timing and meeting point details are issued with the tickets.

The Guide is Anne Mealia. Sorry, no dogs on this walk.

PRE-BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL and it will not be possible to just turn up on the day. This walk is £5 per head.

This walk is 1½ miles, part on woodland paths and strong shoes are advised.    Ticket-holders should meet the Guide in Todmorden at 2pm  (full details supplied with tickets) for a ½ mile walk up the wooded hillside to the Castle.
Access to the Castle by car is difficult but if you need to go by car, route information will be supplied when booking.

Most walks lasts 2 to 2¼ hours and those are fairly easy walking – normally on surfaced paths.  A few walks are a little longer, use rural paths or are harder walking – there will be a note in the text about those.  Walks suitable for powered wheelchairs are noted as such (though a short diversion may be needed in places).  Almost all starting points are served by public transport.  Well behaved dogs on lead are allowed on walks unless otherwise noted.

The majority of walks are circular finishing at the starting point however a few walks are linear and these are marked in the text.

Except where stated otherwise, the charge for our walks is £4 (all ages) and £5 for booked walks.

The majority of walks are circular finishing at the starting point; however a couple of walks are linear and these are marked in the text. Longer walks are indicated in the text.

We must reserve the right not to take anyone on walks who seems unlikely to cope with the conditions.   Every effort is made to adhere to the published programme, but we must also reserve the right to cancel or amend any walk if circumstances make that necessary.  These walks are not really suited to under 13s.

Unless stated, walks begin at 2pm. Please wear appropriate footwear.
