Help connect Holmfirth
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 Holmfirth’s Slow Ways.

Keeping to the route south of Newsome was a bit of a struggle, but this shouldn't cause problems as there are lots of alternative paths....
Very good route along a famous disused rail line and Pennine Wsy national trail. Superb views all along the route....
The path looks as if it goes up through them, but it's better (for you and for the allotment holders) if you continue on just for a little way and turn right at the end of the allotments beside a stone wall. It's then a bit of a trudge along the road into Shepley....
I'm local to the route but it used many footpaths I'd never used before....
We walked this route having started at the adjacent village of Clayton West....

I couldn’t get any description of the route (the print website wouldn’t work for iPad) but the .gpx file loaded into the OS map...
Steep sections, varied surfaces (cobbles, tarmac, grass, mud, gravel), gates & stiles: not suitable for wheel chairs or for people with several health conditions. The route as given includes some sections that make it longer than it need be and increase ascent & descent....
From Holmfirth, you explore cute back alleys and make your way up the hill to the cliffside views over the village. The path going up Cheese Gate Nab (just after Hepworth) was the most challenging part....
