We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

I'm sure this is a lovely walk in the right conditions but am not convinced it is suitable a slow-way as there are better alternative options.

I was tempted to try this but given the time of year (late October) and the previous spell of wet weather I heeded the comments in other reviews and decided that the section across Midgley Moor would most likely be impassable. In the wrong weather conditions it would also be potentially dangerous.

I have added the route I did take as Hebhaw Two - this uses clear and mainly waymarked footpaths for the whole length and should be passable (if muddy) throughout the year.

Really enjoyable route. Some steep climbing early on and not wheelchair accessible at all. But a nice combination of woodland, moorland and river / steam railway.

This is a splendid walk, the literal highlight of which are the 360deg. panoramic views from the highest points along the middle stretch between Deer Stones Edge and Midgley Moor. But it is one best done in fair weather. In parts it is very exposed, route finding could be tricky (especially if walking N-S when trying to follow indistinct, unwaymarked paths to head down off the moor) and it's very muddy in places too.
The climb up out of Hebden Bridge, though not without some attractions of its own, is long and quite hard going, but you are rewarded for your efforts by the views at the top - in good weather!
There are two good pubs along the way (a couple of miles from the start/finish in Peckett Well and Oxenhope), and of course the delights of Haworth await with its cafes, shops, Bronte museum and steam trains!.

Excellent walk. Generally firm underfoot, though there are some very wet areas near Warley Moor Reservoir. Would recommend choosing a clear day to enjoy the fantastic views across Calderdale.

Lovely walk with far reaching views; need a clear day to appreciate these. Some care needs to be taken crossing Midgley Moor as route not always obvious.
