The summer holidays bring the time – if not always the weather – to get out and explore and we have many wonderful walks and interesting bus and train routes, let alone wonderful pubs and other hostelries in the catchment. Some of the walks on offer with relevant links are given below AND you don’t have to get in your car or travel miles.
The Holme Valley Circular
Holme, Digley Reservoir, Black Hill, Holme Moss and Ramsden Clough – a moorland walk taking in some of the Peak District national park https://www.walkingenglishman.com/westyorkshire11.html
The Holme Valley Riverside Way – enabling a mainly riverside walk from Holme Village to Huddersfield (in full or in part, or indeed in reverse )incorporating Digley Reservoir, Holmfirth, Magdale, Armitage Bridge and Lockwood. (copy of the walk available from local Tourist Information centres).
The Kirklees way section 11, Hepworth to Holme (5 miles) – taking in picturesque woods, moors and reservoirs.

There are also some very good offers around such as the Five for a Fiver offer from First.
All 5 people must travel together, it isn’t 4 for a fiver.
It can be 5 adults, or just 1 adult + 4 children or any intermediate combination.
Buy it on the bus, Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays.
Valid on all First West Yorkshire buses. but a great opportunity for families and friends.
