The Calderdale Way, Elland FP003
The Calderdale Way, Elland FP003
The path is approaching a low-point, which is not indicated by the contours. Beyond it you can see a quarry spoil heap, with large pieces of stone piled up amongst trees. The path skirts round the right-hand side, whilst FP004 forks left to a gate into the wood.
Calderdale Way from Turbury Lane to Moor Bottom Lane
This starts, with a public footpath sign, along a cart track to a field gate, which has a footpath gate alongside. It is Elland FP003. The cart track continues along the edge of a large field that used to be Greetland Moor. This track was wet and muddy in early March 2015, but it has been a wet winter. You can walk along the grass next to the fence. At first there is heathland on the left, but the number of trees increases until North Dean Wood is reached. The cart track ends and a well-trodden earth path continues. There should be a junction with Elland FP004 on the left, but there is no sign of it, just a continuous fence. When you reach an area with trees and piles of earth and stones, which are quarry waste, the path goes round to the right of it, at the edge of the pasture. The path to the left is another branch of FP004 and goes to a gate into the wood, on a broad path that becomes FP101 where FP004 turns right and goes alongside the cliffs of the disused North Dean Quarry.
Keeping to FP003, the main path goes invisibly across the field to Bilberry Hall Lane, but the branch that we need to follow skirts round the spoil heap to a stile into the wood. In March 2015 the ground in front of the stile was very muddy. Over the stile we are on FP100, which continues along the top edge of the wood to Moor Bottom Lane.
