Hardcastle Crags has some wonderful walking trails through the forest and the valley. The Gibson Mill in the heart of the forest has some interesting history. Parking is available in two locations which are both a medium walk to the mill.

I am sure this would be a great place at any time of year. There are several walks through the valley and by the river, and it is all great for visitors of all ages.

Our 1st visit, Sunday 30th Sept, the drive from Hebden Bridge was a bit hair raising due to the very narrow lane where you have to squeeze past other cars ! But my husband managed it. Parking was a bit difficult, the Midgehole Rd car...More
