The longstanding dry stone wall obstruction on Holmfirth Footpath 135 has been removed. This path has been blocked for donkeys years and it is very pleasing to see it open. Just needs a sign on on Intake Lane.
It’ll be ploughed out,cropped and knackered for another 10 months in a few weeks so I’m making the most of it. What should be a pleasant little link route is to all intents and purposes a part time path. The views are stunning from the path itself (see below).
And the path links to other routes on Hullock Bank and Scaly Gate to complete a nice little circular walk.
The other side to a walk in this area is the gauntlet of obstacles in your way.
Like the vegetation….
And gates that don’t open and shouldn’t be there…
None of these problems are at all expensive to fix. A modest amount of gumption and a strimmer would easily rectify them and make Footpath 135 the attractive walk it should be.
