Holme Valley Circular Walk
A circular walk through the beautiful Holme Valley.
The walk starts at Berry Brow Railway station near Huddersfield and first heads south to Holmfirth with a lovely stretch along the River Holme at the start. Holmfirth is a popular tourist destination as it is used as the location for the Last of the Summer Wine television series.
The path then takes you around a series of beautiful reservoirs surrounding Holmbridge, before a wooded section and several delightful country lanes lead you to Hepworth. From here you head towards Thurstonland and then onto the fascinating Castle Hill Iron Age Hill Fort. It is a Scheduled Acient Monument and the most conspicuous landmark in Huddersfield. The path then leads you back to the finish at Berry Brow station.
This is a challenging walk with a number of ascents giving stunning views of the Holme Valley.
