Me met up with Matt from www.mypennines.co.uk today for a walk around Midgley Moor in the South Pennines. It was a dull morning and the weather report wasn’t great for the rest of the day. This proved true and it rained for much of the walk. Oh well, it was the Pennines after all, so what was I expecting!
We met Matt at the train station in Mytholmroyd and started our walk from here. After crossing the River Calder we headed up Burnley Road towards Hebden Bridge and then turned off and crossed over the Rochdale Canal. From here on we followed various tracks up to Great Mount Hebden Bridge Golf Course.
A bit of cross country was now needed towards the Trig Point and when were got there we didn’t hang around. Then we made our way towards Miller’s Grave and onto Crow Hill Nook – although we didn’t explore either of them. Perhaps we’ll spend a bit more time up here if the we return on a clear day. We then made our way down to Rochdale Canal up to Mytholmroyd.
On Midgley Moor there are literally paths everywhere, so as long as you know where you’re heading to you should get there, although you should of course always take a map and compass.
