Thanks to the project sponsors

Haworth and Hebden Bridge are the two most popular walking centres in the South Pennines and are only about 7 miles apart as the crow flies. Between them is a fine area of moors, fields, valleys and reservoirs which offers a great opportunity for walking. Following requests from both Visitor Centres, Hebden Bridge Walkers Action is producing a guide to walking routes between the two towns.

Walks to and from Haworth

The route guide

The sixteen page route guide will include:

  • General information about the area between the two towns
  • A map of the routes
  • Detailed directions for walking the Pennine Way and Old Road routes – both ways
  • A selection of walks off the route
  • Bus options from the two routes

The route guide, price £1.50 will be available in March 2015

Variations to the routes

These will be published soon

Walks off the routes

The booklet of 500 bus Bronte link walks has been compiled by Coilin Speakman. They were comissioned by Transdev, the bus company who run the 500 bus, but never published. Thanks to Colin for allowing us to publish an electronic copy.
