Boundary Walk

This year (2017) the Boundary Walk took place the week before RogationSunday. Only three people set off although there had been a lot of interest. We took the route going towards Haworth and Cullingworth and explored a different footpath opposite the Flappitt. This may not have been true to the exact boundary but it kept us off the busy road and was a very pretty route, if a little longer.

Lunch was eaten in the sun in the usual spot and we encountered many horses, lambs, donkeys and geese, not to mention the local scenery which looked at its best. At Damens Station we watched the trains from the platform as part of the afternoon stop. Then, as there is no path by the river (the exact boundary) we walked across the fields in Oakworth with views of the village across the valley, on our way back to the start.

(The route round the parish boundary is about 8 or 9 miles but there are a number of dropping out points and as the route crosses the Halifax Road at Ingrow, it would even be possible to catch a bus back to Cross Roads if needed. The walk is not “led” and we meet as a group of friends going for a walk together.)
