I intended to do a circular walk from Marsden to Black Hill (along the Kirklees Way / Pennine Way), returning to Marsden along the “Old” Pennine way route towards Black Moss Reservoir. Unfortunately, conditions at the summit of Black Hill forcing me to return by the same route.
The walk begins in Marsden Town Centre and continues past the church and then up “Binn Road”, joining the Kirklees way at Butterley Reservoir.
As noted above. the visibility was very poor (and the ground very boggy). Venturing off the main path was not an option, so I decided to call it a day and descended by the same route. Better safe than sorry.
