  • A difficult uphill "red walk" but worth it to see the breath taking views across the Calder Valley. The woodland, trees and wildlife showed British autumnal weather at its finest. From the car park, w...  read more »
  • An utterly beautiful stretch of both ancient and managed woodland. Wonderful to visit to matter what the weather. The paths are well maintained, although some along the river rely on the huge boulders by which won't be traversable to those who's have difficulty with mobility or prams etc. Lots of different roots to choose from. Makes part of one of the best walks around here... Hebden -> Heptonstall -> Widdop -> Blakedean -> Hardcastle Craggs -> Hebden (long and teaching but utterly with every second!). Home to a lot of wildlife (including some amazing ants). Some great spots to stop and eat along the way. There's often some art installations asking the way. Last the mill is my personal favorate parts. Gibbson Mill is lovely and very interesting, it dose have a cafe but it's dangerously priced (obviously monopolising on the fact that you've no choice if you want to use one), but the food and drink they seek is good and the setting is excellent and clean. Really well cared for by the National Trust. British countryside at its best! You won't be disappointed!
  • Wonderful and beautiful area. Up past the mill the terrain is more taxing, but that's where you'll escape the groups with kids and the dog walkers.
  • We all love this place and have visited many times, kids & adults all love it, beautiful Yorkshire at its best!
  • Fantastic to visit in May when the bluebells are out
  • near hebden bridge (well worth a visit too ) west yorks. fine woodland and endless paths to ramble on (inc pennine way and Calderdale way ).heptenstall is on top of the hill and was dessimated by a plague.
