Walk Description

This old railway line on the Trans Pennine Trail provides a relaxed walk for all the family. Start at the thriving market town of Penistone and follow the former Great Central railway out past the skate park through rolling moorland and tree-lined tracks to the remote hamlet of Dunford Bridge. Take a break and admire the views and local wildlife from one of the benches and look out for historic clues of the path’s past. Younger explorers will be thrilled to find a magic wood just after Hazlehead Bridge station, as well as exquisitely painted fairy houses nestling in the trees.
