736 Mill Bank, Ripponden

This must be one of the prettiest walks in Calderdale and it was a surprise to find it so quiet; even the cows seemed surprised to see us. It mostly follows the well signed Calderdale Way, and with hamlets dating back to the 1600s, old churches, ancient pubs, rivers and woods and tremendous views, here's an outing to remember.
