Hoofstone Heights is the highest point in Calderdale.There will be a walk through upper Colden Dale and Noah Dale to Hoofstone Heights on Saturday, unless the rain is very heavy. I think I have worked out why one of the stones is called the Hoofstone. It has an interesting link with another high point just outside the area.
If any naturalists want to get to know some of the footpaths that weave through, they are welcome to join us.
Meet outside New Delight at Jack Bridge, Colden. 10.30 for a 10.45 start. Colden is through Heptonstall, through Slack, but not as far as Blackshaw Head. Map ref. SD963283
Bring packed lunch. No charge.
This is one of the monthly Halifax Scientific Society rambles, but distance and available time means we won’t be stopping to look at every blade of grass.
