Brief Description

From  a car park on the A635, Holmfirth Road, we descend to the Kirklees Way and follow this to Digley Reservoir. A short road walk from the car park takes us on to a quiet tarmac stretch and Holmbridge. Another short road walk takes us on to a track above Ramsden reservoir, to which we descend and then climb out from the wooded valley to Holme. We return to Wessenden Head; frm there we proceed along an excellent track - Issues Road - across the moor and down to cross Blackpool brook and upwards, once more, to finish.
