Mary Towneley Loop, 47 miles

Route type: Circular and Linear Walks

Distance: 75 km (47 miles).

Time required: two days by bike, three to four days on horse or foot.

Start point: a circular route – choose your starting point according to your transport needs. Mountain-bikers in particular may find it best to travel the Loop anti-clockwise. The route is physically challenging because it climbs up and down the steep-sided South Pennine valleys.

Access: there are good public transport links and several car parks along the route. Horse riders can use some of the car parks for loading and unloading horses. Please see map and/or website for further details on car parks.
