Hebden Bridge to Haworth walk
A leisurely walk over west Yorkshire moors (approx 8 miles)
(Photos/words © urban75, March 2008)
With heavy rain forecasted, we set off fairly early, taking the Old Hebden Bridge Road towards Haworth from Pecket Well.
Although the weather changed rapidly over the walk, the heavy rain held off until we arrived at the pub in Haworth!

There was a 33 mile cross country run taking place, with Haworth being the finishing line. Much puffin' and a-pantin' could be heard from time to time.
