||Hebden Bridge Station
||SD 994 269
||Very cold but dry with clear
||Five set off from Hebden Bridge all
wrapped up as it was a very cold start to the day. We quickly
climbed out of the deep valley and out onto and over Midgley Moor
calling at the trig points at Crow Hill Nook and High Brow Knoll.
With clear sky there were very good views of the South Pennines and
Ovenden Moor where there is a wind farm. We followed the catchwater
drain off the Moor past Warley Reservoir and then set off across
Warley Moor stopping for lunch at the Rocking Stone. We then pressed
on to Hebden Bridge via the Calderdale Way.

We dropped down to the first of two castellated buildings we passed.
