Hebden Bridge, Mytholmroyd & The Calder Valley

Churn Milk Joan
A more strenuous walk including some steep paths, taking in both moorland and wooland scenery. On the moor, the tall stone known as Churn Milk Joan is both a local landmark and the subject of a Ted Hughes poem. The stone itself dates from about 1600 and was probably erected to settle a boundary dispute. Hughes commemorated this stone in one of his many poems reflecting on childhood folk tales. This walk has been developed by Mytholmroyd Walkers Action and you can see more routes on their website www.mytholmroydwalkers.org
