After walking my third day of the Pennine Way my destination was Hebden Bridge Eco-Hostel, and my friend decided to join me there. The hostel is located on the east end of town and up a hill, but this gave us the advantage of being able to pass by the artisanal shops, sidewalk cafes, and art galleries that lined the streets.Read More
The South Pennines Walk and Ride Festival, 7th-22nd Sept 2019
July 9th 2019
17days of celebration in the beautiful hills and valleys of the South Pennines. Join events for families, cyclists, horse riders and walkers.
The South Pennines Walk and Ride Festival, 7th – 22nd Sept 2019 is the perfect opportunity to explore the wild and wonderful South Pennines landscape around Hebden Bridge, its heather-covered moors, steep-sided valleys, canals, reservoirs and packhorse trails. Spanning the Yorkshire Lancashire border this area has a fascinating history, offering everything from Neolithic stone carvings to world-changing industrial heritage and many hidden gems. Over the centuries it has inspired artists and writers and those who visit and those who stay.
You may wish to march across the moorland on one of the strenuous all-day hikes or perhaps discover the geology of Widdop Moor just north of Hebden Bridge accompanied by readings of Ted Hughes’ poetry. Or maybe saddle up for the Bronte mountain bike challenge. Whatever your pace or interests the South Pennines has it all.
Take a walk around the railway used in the filming of the Railway Children
November 28th 2018
The Oakworth to Oxenhope Steam Trail, just five miles from Hebden Bridge Hostel, is a 3 mile walk with a train trip back
Oakworth to Oxenhope Steam Trail is a 2.5 mile linear walk between two stations on the Keighley and Worth Valley heritage railway in West Yorkshire. The journey in the opposite direction can be completed with a train ride (on a steam train if you plan ahead in the summer months) . The Ifootpath team have provided a walk route and Hebden Bridge hostel provides great location in private and shared rooms with self catering facilities and lots of interesting eaterys nearby.
Heritage railways are popular filming locations for both the large and small screen. This particular heritage line was the location for one of the most iconic railway films of all time, The Railway Children, released in 1970 and starring Jenny Agutter. At the time of filming, there were still very few heritage railways in Britain and this one was chosen as it included a tunnel, an important feature for several scenes. This walk will lead you on a journey discovering several locations from the film, including Haworth and Oakworth, and also includes a train ride through the famous tunnel for the return leg.
