A superb way to go walking in Calderdale - The Calderdale Way is a 50 mile (80 km) walk exploring the hills, moors and valleys of Calderdale that recently celebrated its 40th anniversary.
It is an ‘up and down’ journey with few level sections. However, the higher levels provide some exceptionally fine panoramic views. The main and link routes to the valley bottom are designed so that they can be completed in short stages.
The Calderdale Way encircles Halifax, Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, following old packhorse ways across the open gritstone hillsides with sections of traditional stone causeway, passing through hillside villages and old mill towns on the banks of the River Calder.
There are numerous link paths which connect the Calderdale Way to the valley floor. There are medieval settlements at Lumbutts and Mankinholes, and Withens Gate, where the Pennine Way crosses. A short diversion along the Pennine Way takes in the popular walk to the 100ft monument, Stoodley Pike.
The full length of the route is 51.39 miles, with a total climb of approx 2,600 metres (over 9,000 feet) at a climb rate of 43 metres per mile. This makes a flat equivalent distance of 57.49 miles.
The long period of hot weather has meant there is an increased risk of moorland fires in Calderdale. Please take care when out and about in moorlands around Calderdale and West Yorkshire. You can find more advice here. The burning of moorland is not a victimless crime. If you see anything suspicious report it to crimestoppers 0800 555111. #moorlandfires @WestYorksPolice @West_Yorks_FRS

Right on the Pennine Way and close to Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, this is the ideal destination for a lovely break away with your family or friends. This characterful holiday home is nestled within the owner's grounds, with horses grazing in the fields and gentle lakes you can walk around, before spending your down time within the cosy sitting room. You can sink into the sofa on a cool wintry evening and get toasty and warm by the fire as you catch up on your favourite TV shows. Use the kitchen next door to rustle up a home-cooked meal and get together around the dining table to discuss plans for the following day. Later, choose from a super king-size bedroom upstairs, which has zip/link beds for flexibility, or catch your rest in the single room. They are each served by the well-appointed shower room and boast remarkable views of rolling hills and vales. Outside, you have your very own private patio area for soaking up a balmy afternoon with a drink and you can greet the horses over the fence. No smoking and no pets allowed. We do not accept children under the age of 14.
