An easy bee-sy fam­ily walk

Halifax Courier - - Front Page -

Get a buzz out of the great out­doors. Our Best Foot For­ward col­umn fea­tures the Bee Boles Walk.

This week’s fea­tured walk is cour­tesy of Mytholm­royd Walk­ers Ac­tion, as the group in­vites fam­i­lies to take part in The Bee Boles Walk on Satur­day, May 30. Walk­ers are asked to meet at Mytholm­royd War Me­mo­rial, off Burn­ley Road, at 10.30am. The 2.2 mile easy walk is suit­able for chil­dren but not bug­gies and in­cludes some up­hill walk­ing. It’s a great chance to show chil­dren some his­toric Bee Boles.


Walk down to the canal tow­path and head in the Hal­i­fax di­rec­tion. Con­tinue along the tow­path to Bri­er­ley (bridge no. 9) then walk over the bridge across the canal and very care­fully cross the woods. Fol­low the foot­path to the left of the house and steeply up into the woods. Fol­low the track up­hill, climb some cob­bled steps and then the very old stones of a pack­horse trail. Leave the woods past a cou­ple of houses on your left and cross straight over Mid­g­ley Road fol­low­ing the sign­post to Foster Clough. You are now at Stoney Royd Farm - re­mem­ber to leave the gate as you find it. Fol­low the track and just be­fore the farm­house on your left, fork right on to a grassy path. Go through a tiny gate then at the end of the wall, on your left, look back through the wide wooden gate where you can see the Bee Boles (there would have been a house here many years ago). Al­most im­me­di­ately fol­low the track down­hill on your left, through a tiny gate and then down be­tween two white walls. Climb over a stile and fol­low the track down to the road. Walk care­fully in sin­gle file back down Mid­g­ley Road, past Calder High School, to Mytholm­royd.
