We are very lucky in Mill Bank in not only being surrounded by beautiful countryside but also by a whole network of footpaths, tracks, bridleways and quiet roads.
We have the Calderdale Way, a circular path of some 50 plus miles going straight through the village and we are within five miles or so of the Pennine Way, the Brontë Way, the Kirklees Way and several others.
The unusual feature of the area is that you can walk from the middle of bustling little towns, and yet within a mile or two be high above them and on open moorland.
There are many booklets on walks in the South Pennine area but we will shortly produce a guide to some of the walks specifically from Mill Bank itself. The village is also a very good starting point for mountain biking, horse riding and fell-running.
