This walk follows the historic watercourses of the Rochdale canal and the Calder and Hebble Navigation, winding through characterful industrial towns and imposing hills. Tread in the steps of the former Poet Laureate Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, who were inspired by this dramatic landscape, with its wild moors and lush native woodlands. As well as watercourses, the route follows the train line, so you can decide where to stop, enjoy a break in one of the many cafes of Mytholmroyd, Sowerby Bridge or Brighouse, and get a train back.
