We have been invited by members of Manchester iVC to one of their excellent walk events. Manchester iVC is a subscription organisation, but you are invited to try out this walk.
This is a new walk from a new pub, the Kingfisher, Chew Valley Road, Greenfield,
Saddleworth, OL3 7AE.
Take the A670 Ashton to Huddersfield road, and at the A669 in Greenfield turn
south (right if you are coming from Manchester) following the signs to “Village
Centre” and Greenfield Station, which will then pass on your right as you go
Follow this road as it bends very sharply to the left at the bottom, and the pub is
soon on the left hand side before Tesco’s. There is a sizeable car park at the pub,
or failing that there is some on-street parking on Shaw Hall Bank Road if you turn
right instead of left at the sharp bend.
The walk is about 6 miles to Buckton Vale mainly via the Huddersfield Narrow
Canal and the Pennine Bridleway, and there is a climb of about 100 metres in the
Public Transport : An hourly train service on the Huddersfield line leaves
Manchester Victoria at 43 past the hour, arriving at Greenfield Station at 06 past
the hour, and buses 350 and 354 also pass the pub.
