Burnley to Bingley

37 km / 23 miles

Lancs, W Yorks
A high level traverse of the Pennine watershed beginning in the Calder Valley at Burnley and finishing in the Aire Valley at Bingley. For the most part it passes over open moorland, dropping from the 'tops' only to descend into small 'deans' or 'cloughs' or to cross arterial roads. Between the watershed at Gorple and the Altar Road at St. Ives there is no substantial loss of altitude. The highest point of the walk is on Nab Hill, 1479 feet above sea level. This geography makes Burnley and Bingley, deep in their respective valleys, ideal termini.
