A walk along the heights around the Holme Valley, it takes in Castle Hill, the villages of Farnley Tyas, Thurstonland, Hepworth, Netherthong and Honley. There is a variety of scenery including many viewpoints. The Holme Valley Hills and Hamlets Walk (9 miles) which is included on OS mapping but for which there is no available publication, incorporates a route linking Holmfirth and Netherthong with various sites of interest and in parts is coincident with the Holme Valley Circular Walk. The Holme Valley Circular Challenge Walk (24 miles) involves almost 4000ft of ascent and in parts is coincident with the main route. The main publication is now out of print.
