Robin Hood's Bed guided walk
Date published: 17 March 2012
A high level circuit on the watershed will offer walkers the chance to experience the beauty of the South Pennines in spring.
The seven and a half-mile free guided Robin Hood’s Bed walk organised by rural regeneration organisation, Pennine Prospects, through the Watershed Landscape Project, will take walkers past the rocky outcrops at Robin Hood’s Bed and return via Green Withens Reservoir. It will start at 11.30am on Sunday, March 25.
Everyone interested in taking part are asked to meet the walk guide, Derek Southward, at the car park (lay-by) opposite the junction of the A58 and B6138, three miles east of Littleborough.
Walkers are reminded to wear suitable warm and waterproof clothing and walking boots. Unfortunately dogs, except guide and hearing dogs, are not permitted on the walk.
Pennine Prospects has been awarded just under £1.9million by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to bring the story of the Watershed Landscape to life. The project, funded under the HLF’s Landscape Partnership Scheme (LPS), will support landscape restoration, access and heritage projects in the area. The South Pennines Watershed Landscape is the upland habitat where rainwater is divided east from west; North Sea from Irish Sea; Lancashire from Yorkshire.
The Watershed Landscape Project is a partnership managed by Pennine Prospects with the following partners: Yorkshire Water, United Utilities, Rochdale Council, Oldham Council, RSPB, Calderdale MBC, Kirklees Council, Bradford Metropolitan District Council, Natural England, Lancashire County Council, National Trust, Groundwork, West Yorkshire Geology Trust, Friends of Ilkley Moor.
The Project is financially supported by LEADER and Heritage Lottery Fund and our individual partners.
