Walk Description:

Your Invitation to join us on the last Orchard Camping Hike of the year in and around the lovely Holme Valley and Ingbirchworth Parish. The walk is a mixture of footpath, bridal paths and minor roads.

We arrive at Shepley at 10:34 and quickly join the Kirklees Way towards Gate Foot and onto Hullock Bank where we have great views over Jackson Bridge and Holmefirth.

We head off the Kirklees Way and join the Barnsley Boundary Walk towards Ingbirchworh Reservoir where we have fabulous and extensive views looking towards Penistone, Barnsley and Gunthwaite.

From here we will meander down some lovely pasture land and back into Penisone for a well deserved beverage for those that fancy it.

There are no major climbs so is suitable for most people.

What to wear: We’re hoping for nice weather, however be prepared, it could be unsettled. We would recommend that you bring waterproofs, and warm clothes (hat, scarf, gloves) if the weather is poor. Sturdy footwear is essential. If you are responsible for others please ensure that they are suitably dressed.

What to bring: Lunch & refreshments (plenty of water), camera, money.

Please note: You will be solely responsible for your own safety and transport arrangements. We accept no responsibility for any loss, injury or illness as a result of joining the hike.
