footpaths


Calderdale Way - 80 km (50 m)

The southern Pennines, with many interesting old villages and industrial remains, provide the background for this route around the Calder Valley with Bridgehouse at one end, Todmorden at the other and Halifax in between.


Cheshire Ring Canal Walk - 156 km (97 m)

Following the towpaths of six canals, starting at Marple, this is a walk of contrasts. The countryside along the Macclesfield Canal is relaxing after Manchester city bustle; historic buildings give way to modern factories, and all is bordered by the Peak District mountains and Cheshire Plains.


Limestone Way (aka White Peak Way) - 42 km (26 m)

This pleasant walk covers the White Peak area, the limestone southern part of the Peak District. Starting at Matlock it follows a course through dry dales to end in Castleton in the more rugged Black Peak area of the National Park. The walk is known by different names apart from the Limestone Way or White Peak Way it is also known as the Pennine Way South Extension.

Pennine Way - 412 km (256 m)

Probably the most famous of all the British long distance walks.

The Pennine Way, a National Trail, is described in two guides: Pennine Way North: Bowes to Kirk Yetholm and Pennine Way South - Edale to Bowes both written by T. Hopkins and published by the Countryside Commission and Aurum Press.
