7th September -- Hebden Bridge, Calderdale

The "A" walkers started in the centre of Hebden Bridge, first climbing through Lee Wood and down again to New Bridge. Then north to Lumb Hole Falls, and west to the reservoirs on Heptonstall Moor. Then heading back to Hebden via Reaps Cross and the Pennine Bridleway. A total of nearly 15 miles and over 4000 feet of climbing.

The 'C' group's walk this month, was up Golden Clough to Jack Bridge, then across Staups Moor to Great Rock where they took lunch ! Continuing, we dropped down to the Leeds Liverpool Canal for the walk back to Hebden. Not content with the walk, some of the group were able to 'offer advice' and assistance to a boater in trouble, while others rested! Back in Hebden, the group enjoyed a number of venues.

The famous "Shoulder of Mutton" ...

If looks could kill... Vision blurring, definitely time for the coach!
