This is Book 21 in the series of full-colour 'Pocket Walks', being small, practical sized guidebooks aimed at the less serious rambler. Full colour photographs and colourful sketch maps accompany each of the well described walks, with the bonus of making it an attractive souvenir of the area. Principal feature is that all walks are less than five miles in length (though averaging 4 miles each, they are all very definitely worthwhile outings), making them ideal for families, leisure walkers, and others constrained by either time or other limitations. Concise route descriptions are complemented by background information.
This title deals with the area around the hugely characterful little town of Hebden Bridge in the absorbing countryside of the upper Calder Valley in the South Pennines. Twenty super walks use starting points such as Heptonstall, Luddenden and Todmorden, and of course Hebden Bridge itself. Places visited include Hardcastle Crags, Stoodley Pike, Blake Dean and Cragg Vale.
Hebden Bridge and the Calder Valley is published simultaneously with Book 20 which covers the neighbouring area Haworth and Bronte Country.
