Explore the stunning landscape of the South Pennines Park on foot, on cycle or on horseback. Whether you wish to wander through woodland, clamber over crags, bike to a brewery or trot to a tearoom, it’s all on offer in this festival fortnight.

The South Pennines is a wild, wonderful and occasionally wuthering landscape at the place where Yorkshire and Lancashire collide. A land of steep-sided valleys, heather-covered moorland, canals, reservoirs and packhorse trails. The people who live here describe it as ‘spectacular’, ‘inspiring’, ‘breathtaking’ and ‘dramatic.’

It’s a place where you’ll find intense local pride – people who are passionate about the area and want to share what they know. Did you know we have the kilometre square with the densest network of public paths in England? We also have the most accessible land of anywhere in England outside a National Park AND the longest continuous uphill road climb (and descent too of course) out of Cragg Vale towards Littleborough. Amazing eh?
