    is that the one frey sowerby bridge? if so alledgedly , according to me mate, i would rather do meanwood valley trail but i think my pride won't let me back out,

    The furthest i ve ever done in t hills is 15miles (unless the 3 peaks counts) so i m a wee bit scared

    A bit too far for me at the moment but Mrs Stagger and a few of the Stainland Lady's are have a potter round as training for the 3 peaks.

    If you have the time I would definitely recommend a reconnoitre. I've never had the time for such a luxury, resulting in this always being my most frustrating event. Calderdale is riddled with footpaths (many hidden up apparently private driveways, behind bushes and up secret ginnels), so navigational errors are obligatory - if you haven't reconnoitred. Best of luck, and plan meticulously.

    I'll be returning again (don't ask me why - I can't keep away) and hoping to get further than the 26 miles I managed last year.
