Stanza Stones Trail

72 km / 45 miles

Gtr Man, W Yorks
The Stanza Stones Trail visits glorious high moorland and goes through wooded valleys - from Marsden to Ilkley via Hebden Bridge, Oxenhope and Bingley. The Trail features six new poems by Simon Armitage, carved by Pip Hall into six atmospheric locations and whether you?re a keen walker ready to tackle full day walks incorporating two or more stones in one go or just fancy a short family outing there?s something for everyone. The trail is split into three walks each of which includes snippets of information about the stones, full directions, maps, and information about parking, toilets and nearby pubs, tea rooms and cafes. The publication can be dowloaded free from the link below, with only used paper copies now available to buy.
