Although less than a mile in distance, the ascent is quite challenging due to its steep and cobbled nature. However, this does not deter dozens of enthusiastic cyclists from riding up to the top in the annual 'Up the Buttress' hill cycle challenge. The Buttress can also be tackled in a more leisurely fashion and is suitable for walking. Suitable footwear is recommended as the cobbles can be a little slippy when wet. The Buttress begins its ascent from Hebden Bridge just off Old Gate/ Royd Terrace. If you cross the Packhorse Bridge from Bridge Gate, then you will see the cobbles of the Buttress to you left. almost opposite Hangingroyd Lane on your right.

It will take you on a walking tour around Halifax town centre, asking you to use your detective skills of observation, thinking, note-taking and sketching as you go. You can complete the Discovery Trail in a way that suits you. It can be done in ‘bite-size’ chunks over several visits or if you are feeling brave and have a lot of energy, you can try it all in one go! Many of the tasks can be completed by looking at the outsides of the buildings but sometimes, you will be invited to pop indoors to have a search around. Please check the opening times for each building that allows this – details are on their websites which are listed throughout the booklet. As far as is reasonably practicable, each building on this Discovery Trail provides a standard of access for disabled people equal to that enjoyed by the rest of the public.
