Help connect Denholme

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Denholme’s Slow Ways.

A long steep climb up the busy road that leads to the village of Haworth itself can be avoided by a short detour along to the K&WVR station, crossing the footbridge over the railway there, and then zig-zagging up through Central Park to the end of the route outside Haworth Old Hall Inn....

Upland route with spectacular views mostly on public footpaths. If you start at Denholme probably about 80% of route is downhill, starting Bingley 80% uphill, sometimes steep. Refreshments available approx halfway at Wilsden....

Walk this route

There are various roads, and a Park, giving access from the start in Denholme downhill to Station Road. The Route takes a narrow footpath alongside the site fence which soon climbs the battered remnants of an old setted path to fields where it turns left to follow the Millennium Way to a bridge over a stream feeding Doe Park Reservoir....

The Calderdale Way (which the Route subsequently rejoins) turns left to follow Holdsworth Road downhill, but the Route goes a short distance right before turning left through a gap in the wall above the entrance to Playing Fields onto a diverted footpath skirting the playing fields outside a fence. From the high points, here, looking ahead the buildings of Halifax Town Centre are visible straight ahead and down hill, but the Route is to go left and uphill. From Catherine Slack junction re-enter Calderdale on Swales Moor Road, and opposite the first buildings on the left, go right, downhill, on a modern driveway, again following the Calderdale Way logo. The Route continues along the side of the tree-lined Shibden Valley , with way markings somewhat spasmodic until it approaches Scout Hall, a remarkable Georgian House in course of renovation, There the Calderdale Way goes left, downhill, but the Route continues past the main entrance onto the drive to Lee Lane (known to cyclists as 'The Shibden Wall'), which it joins on a hairpin bend. Straight on for 25 yards the road goes left, but the Route takes an unmarked footpath on the right which roughly follows the contour....

At the end of the dam wall the Route takes a left turn (Photo 10), and after 200 yards takes the moderately difficult left fork as the path splits (Photo 11). At the bottom of this path, take a left over a bridge (Photo 12), through a 'squeeze' beside a gate (Photo 13) and onto a small road past Halifax Golf Club (Photos 14 and 15). As the drive joins a road look for a small path on the left (Photo 19) and follow this up hill and through two squeezes (Photo 20) to a gate (Photo 21) next to the Mount Zion Chapel (Photo 22). Turn left on Per Lane and at the end follow the Calderdale Way Waymarks across A629 to Blind Lane (Photo 23. 24)....
