Crimsworth Dene

Posted: September 8, 2014 in Notes from Hebden Bridge

Today’s walk with Doctor Magnus, up to the top of Crimsworth Dene. This heavily wooded valley comes down from the moors to join to the National Trust Property of Hardcastle Crags. Near the top is the local beauty spot of Lumb Falls. You get some great views of the forest around Hebden Bridge on the way up.


The view back down to Hebden Bridge, about three miles out.


A lot of derelict farms and outbuildings have been converted into modern homes nearer to the Calder valley, but the further you go out onto the moors the more likely it is that you’ll come across some isolated, picturesque ruin.


Lumb Falls. A great wild swimming spot. I couldn’t get a decent picture of this as Magnus couldn’t get down to the stream here.

    You really need to start on a new project, Haley, you’re starting to fill up the internet tubes.

      You’re partly wrong there Thorpey, I have three projects on the go. One of them is increasing my internet presence. Essential, really, as my chances of getting to conventions and the like are practically zero.

      However, I am just bumbling about. I suppose. What I really lack is a pressing deadline.
