A 14 mile Pennine Way day walk. Not pretty in parts. Start Marsden station. Can walk up to Standedge or take bus 184 from Peel St (main road) at 58 past hour. Once at Hebden Bridge, trains Mon-Fri are at 9 past the hour. Change Brighouse & Huddersfield to return to Marsden (1.25 hours). On a Sunday it takes MUCH longer! Check times before travelling!
