Marsden to Greenfield linear walk - Sunday 5th August

Distance - 9 miles (approx 4 hours)

Meeting time/point - 10.36 am Greenfield Station to catch train to Marsden

Difficulty - moderate

Description - We will be catching the 10.36 am train from Greenfield Station to Marsden and walking back over the moor to Greenfield via Diggle.

The route will follow the canal towpath out of Marsden, with a short steep climb onto the moor. Then follow moorland paths over to Millstone Edge overlooking Castleshaw Reservoirs, down into Diggle via the Pennine Bridleway and back onto the towpath for the last section to Greenfield.

If you prefer to drive to Marsden you can meet us at the station at approx 10.45 am but will need to make arrangements to get back to Marsden to pick up your car.
