1. Checking Paths
'Walks around Midgley Village' - 'Midgley and The Rochdale Canal' (walk 3).
Starting from the Midgley shop the path left the main road, went up Green Lane, then downhill into Kershaw Estate and through to a path that led down a steep banking to the main A646 road and the canal at Luddenden Foot. After a mile of canal towpath towards Mytholmroyd, the route turned right, re-crossed the road, went upwards past Brearley House and steeply up to Midgley Road before returning to the village centre.
Various bits and pieces to sort out including; rotten stile posts, lots of cutting back on stretches of the pathway (including steps) through woodland, fallen tree covering path to clear, and a gaping hole in the retaining wall by some steps. Paul.
