Laneshawbridge to Haworth - Christmas Walk 2018

WALK A (11 miles) The walk starts from Laneshawbridge and follows the Pendle Way along Wycoller Beck, through the country park and passing the remains of Wycoller Hall. Here we pick up the Bronte Way and go along Smithy Clough and out on to Dove Stones Moor. Our route takes us past Watersheddles Reservoir, Silver Hill, Whitestones to Ponden Hall. Shortly after this, the A Walk, heads up Stanbury Moor to the ruins at The Withins, allegedly, the Manor House of Wuthering Heights in the Emily Bronte novel. From here we descend to cross Rough Dike and climb to pass Harbour Hill and Lodge. We then cross above the Bronte Watefalls and walk along the edge of Haworth Moor to Black Leech. We re-join the Bronte Way that takes us through Penistone Hill Country Park and into Haworth.

The B Walk (8 miles) Starts at the "Atom" panopticon and goes down to Wycoller to follow the A Walk to Ponden Hall. Then continues along the reservoir to join the Peninne Way to meet the C Walk near Duke Top.

The C WALK (5 miles) . Starts at Scar Top and along Ponden Reservoir then up Ponden Clough Beck. From here we head to Far and then Near Slack farms to Duke Top. The B Walk joins here. Both walks go to Cold Knoll and the hamlet of Stanbury, across Lower Laithe Reservoir to Sladen Bridge and into Haworth.
