Today’s walk of the day is a eight mile linear route from the historic Haworth to the ‘hip’ Hebden Bridge.
Your start point is at the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth. Haworth is notable for its association with the Brontë family. Charlotte, Emily and Anne wrote some of the most noteworthy novels of the Victorian Era including Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.
Haworth to Hebden Bridge – Route
Start from the car park at the Parsonage Museum and head down the steps towards West Lane. Take a right turn down the hill until you reach a church. Take a path to the right towards Penistone Hill. Follow this until you reach a fork in the path with two options: Haworth Old Road or Pennine Way.
We recommend that you take the Haworth Old road route as it is shorter (six miles) compared to the Pennine Way (ten miles). If you’re feeling extra active, combine these walks to make a circuit at around sixteen miles in length.
The route along the Haworth Old Road is relatively straightforward and signposted towards Hebden Bridge. It will take you over moorland that was inspirational to the Brontë sisters.
