Twine Lane and Lower Ewood

Distance: 1½ miles. Time: 35 minutes.

Walking conditions: One short uphill slope. Extremely muddy so boots essential, but route gives glorious views down Calder Valley.

From Moderna Way, cross the road, and turn right; walk along pavement, turning left at signpost. Walk up Twine Lane, avoiding worst of mud; near top, bear right up sunken walled path. At Lower Ewood, above house, turn right. After house, turn right again, through gate, down steps, then keeping near wall.

Down to Brearley: descend gradually and cross marshy stream. Immediately after stile, turn right down to road. Turn left towards Brearley, until it is safe to cross road. Turn right into Brearley Hall Lane and over canal, then right again, taking towpath back.
