Walk Details

January Walk 2024

A 6 mile circular walk from All Hallows Church in Kirkburton, Huddersfield.

The walk will be led by our South Yorkshire contingent of Adele and Heather.

If anyone would like to look at the route before the day of the walk, details can be found on the Kirkburton Parish Walks Website and this particular walk is called "Hester's Haunt".

Start at 11am PROMPT as usual.

Leave the Huddersfield Ring Road at the Sainsbury's roundabout on the A629 towards Waterloo (AKA Wakefield Road) and then keep right at the Waterloo traffic lights staying on the A629 where it becomes Penistone Road. After a further 2.5 miles turn left (after the chip shop) on to North Road leading to Kirkburton & All Hallows church HD8 0SJ (0.8 miles from the turn).

Unfortunately the village pub is closed down, but for the thirsty & hungry amongst us, back on Penistone Road The Foxglove is the closest chain pub & Restaurant if people want a drink or meal before the journey home (see Vintage Inns Website for info, Sue don't forget your works ID).

We could also stop on-route for a coffee or drink at The Venue on the Storthes Hall campus if enough people express an interest.

Saturday we are to meet at The Causeway Foot pub, Halifax HX2 8XX.
