i have started to do more walking from my house to well wherever i can get.
today walked from home through the town center up to shibden park then on to hipperholme and back again via the 'MAGNA VIA' which is the one of the most ancient pack horse routes in the uk.
the route dates from just after 1066,and at places it is worn down to 12ft deep.
the cobbles were added in around 1700,as halifax became a major town for the wool industry.daniel defoe was not impressed with the only 'road' into the town(from the east).what routes are from the west?
its a shame i missed the plaque,but its such an interesting walk,my father told me his great grandmother had mentioned a pub along this track. though i forget its name,but it may be the best pub name in the country!)
