Sowerby Bridge, Ripponden & The Ryburn Valley

The little Ryburn which runs down from the Pennines to Sowerby Bridge once powered the textile mills. Now its peaceful valley is waiting to be rediscovered.

If you fancy fine moorland landscapes, make for Norland Moor (crossed by the Calderdale Way long distance trail) or Rishworth Moor, where the choice of destinations includes both Dog Hill and Cat Moss. More gentle walking can be enjoyed in and around Ripponden and Sowerby Bridge. The Rochdale canal towpath in Sowerby Bridge is a great place for strolling.
