Le Tour à pied

24 km / 15 miles

S Yorkshire
The route is approximately parallel to that taken by the Tour de France ('Le Tour') as it skirted Stocksbridge in July 2014. It discovers the river, woodland and open moors in Bolderstone, Deepcar, Langsett and Stocksbridge. Starting at Langsett before following the line of an ex-railway, the route then goes through Midhopestones, ascends to both Barnside and Broomhead Moors and skirts the Canyards before leaving the route of 'Le Tour' at High Bradfield. Included are parts of one of the stage two climbs, 'Le C'te de Midhope'. Points of interest include an ex-railway track, a Potters' Well, medieval churches, a turnpike road, WW2 training areas, shooting butts, a stone circle, the site of a 1932 mass trespass, boundary stones, an SSI and milestones. During the grouse season access to parts of the route may be restricted, with diversions identified.
