GPS Cycle and Walking Routes


Spen Valley Greenway

8 miles (13 km)

This splendid cycling and walking route runs along a disused railway line from Dewsbury to Oakenshaw near Bradford. The path is well surfaced and entirely traffic free. As such it is ideal for families with young children or anyone looking for a nice easy ride or walk.
You start off in Dewsbury, near the train station, and follow the River Calder to the start of the rail trail. You then head north west through Iversedge and Cleckheaton, passing awildlife reserve and a rolling golf course as you go. The trail is also lined with a number of sculptures such as Sally Matthew’s flock of Swaledale Sheep, constructed from recycled industrial scrap.
The trail comes to an end around Oakenshaw but you have the option of continuing along the National Cycle Network into Bradford which is only a few miles further north.
If you're on foot then you can link up with either the Kirklees Way or the Spen Way Heritage Trail at Oakenshaw.
