Using two cars has gone as far as practical we think. It was an hour and a half for me to drive to Denholme Gate then another half hour or so to our parking near Haworth in BC's car. Having said that we were off walking by 9:35 am.
A short climb took us onto the Bronte moors followed by a steep descent to the Bronte Waterfsalls. They were a bit of a disappointment despite a decent dose of rain the day before, but even with meagre water it is a pleasant dell and potential picnic spot. Excellent, top of the world moorland walking followed. The GPX route I had downloaded did not go right into Haworth, but we did. Considering this was bank-holiday Saturday it was not badly overcrowded, and it was interesting to see again - my last visit must have been over forty years ago.
Descending from Haworth we came to the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway terminus where a convenient bench above the track provided comfort for our lunch stop. The puffing steam train was arriving as we approached from above. Later we were treated to it moving out, fortunately with its smoke blowing in the opposite direction. BC seemed to be knowledgeable about these locomotives and was able to identify this black monster. Passengers disembarked and came past us apparently walking back to Haworth on the paths we had arrived on.
Approaching Oxenhope we missed a turn and continued high up Dark Lane before descending again to Lower Town, but it was worth it for a splendid view down to the valley. Out of Lower Town we had another diversion with minor roads that just didn't seem to correspond with our map, perhaps we were getting tired with the heat of the day? Back on track we passed to the west of Leeming reservoir, then to the east of Thornton Moor reservoir, and then a fairly stiff climb up to the spot height 361m. Here we had the most extensive view of the day's walk looking right back over the distance we had travelled, and we rested and refreshed for the second time - it was a magic spot on this bright sunny day. Another kilometre on a decent lane had us back to my car at Denholme Gate. This had been a varied and attractive walk with good views and interest all the way.
