Explore Hardcastle Crags, West Yorkshire

An attractive wooded valley immediately north west of Hebden Bridge, Hardcastle Crags follows Hebden Water from just beneath the moors of Bronte country past Gibson Mill, a 19th-century cotton mill, to join the neighbouring valley of Crimsworth Dean before the Water tumbles over weirs and through the town and joins the River Calder.

The valley is otherwise known as Hebden Dale and offers shady woodland, stepping stones and riverside walks, as well as a chance to learn about the industrial history of the area at the Gibson Mill visitor centre, and as a special treat from later this week the National Trust is allowing camping in a special area of the Crags.
