Marsden - Photography walk

The walk is approximately 4.5 miles and should be relatively easy.
DO NOT RELY ONLY ON THE POSTCODE TO FIND THE CAR PARK. LOOK ON THE LINKS BELOW !!!!

Meeting at 10:45, the walk starts at 11:05 to allow for anyone getting the train from Manchester (arrives 1059). See train times below.

We will meet at Marsden "Standedge Tunnel" cark park (I think the car park is free but bring some change in case !).
Featuring : Village. tunnel, waterfall(?), moorland(?), wildlife
There should be plenty of photographic opportunities.


It should be a fairly easy walk (elevation =596.13 feet at the lowest point and[masked] at the highest point).

Also please note I have never been to the selected locations. I just decide from a map and then create the walk.

Train times: From Manchester VICTORIA at 10.27 arrives Marsden 10.59 (or from Piccadilly at 10.11 and change at Stalybridge). From Huddersfield at 10.30 (arrives 10.42). Connections at Huddersfield from Leeds (dep Leeds 10.08) and Sheffield (dep Sheffield 8.36 direct to Huddersfield or 8.51 via Leeds)

      I can suggest a place. Although i dont know how photographically interesting it will be for most. It is certainly a beautiful location.
