The Calderderdale Way is a fine path and the stretch from Withens Clough to Lumbutts goes up and over wild moorland with great views and several points of interest.
Paul and Stella walked there and back, refreshing or replacing waymarks and noting any work for the future. The path north of the reservoir up to the track from Red Dykes ruin has some serious drainage issues. Where it runs west along the hillside wall it is a lovely stone causey under all the muck.
At the top of the hill is the ancient Te Deum stone and when you get to Mankinholes there is a local welcoming committee.
