HEBDEN BRIDGE WALKERS ACTION
Welcome to the website of Hebden Bridge Walkers' Action, a group of local people who love walking and want to encourage others to share our enjoyment. We hope you enjoy discovering our beautiful south Pennines countryside in Yorkshire.
Information for Walkers. Use this website for ideas of where to walk, for public transport information, for details of organised guided walks and where else to look for local walk routes in and around Hebden Bridge.
Gentle walking. Walking in not just for hikers, there are lots of people who prefer a stroll and some who are unable to do strenuous walks. We have produced a series Gentle Walks that are easy to access from Hebden Bridge.
Walkers are Welcome. One of our first initiatives was to develop an accreditation scheme, to enable Hebden Bridge to have the accolade of Britain's first Walkers are Welcome town.
Waymarked routes. We have developed three waymarked routes from the centre of Hebden Bridge- One to Hardcastle Crags, One to Heptonstall, One to Stoodley Pike. Details of the routes, and three routes in Mytholmroyd are on this website. Even better, get a guide to both the Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd walks available from the Hebden Bridge Visitors Centre and other local outlets.
Current officers: John Dunford is Chair, Ian vickridge is Vice Chair, Mo Ludlum is secretary and Richard Peters is treasurer. Email us for more information
Stepping out. Flights of stone steps are a unique feature of the history, landscape and footpath network in the locality. Our community photographic project to celebrate them took place in the summer of 2007 and resulted in a fantastic photomosaic of over 800 photographs.
