A good vantage point on the Pennine way, equidistant from Todmorden and Hebden Bridge. A short walk from the Top Brink pub and, en route to Hebden 100 yards down the slope, the best spring water in Todmorden

This monument can be seen in most directions around the area. Standing proud on a desolate moorland hill top. Built of Millstone Grit by Prisoners of War I believe. Huge chunks of rock make you wonder how it was ever built where it was. It’s...More
