A Walk Around Charlestown and Jumble Hole

A Walk Around Charlestown and Jumble Hole – This delightful walk, along the canal and up a beautiful wooded valley, will give you glimpses of hidden 18th and 19th century industrial history.

There are three main highlights of this trail: the canal, built in the late 18th century is a real feat of engineering. There are also hidden remnants of 19th century industrial heritage and fantastic views of the Calder Valley.

About the Trail


This 5 km (3 mile) e-Trail starts off along the canal, then heads up the picturesque wooded valley of Jumble Hole Clough and returns along the hillside, with spectacular views of the Calder Valley. The e-Trail will take you about 2 hours (a bit longer if you have children with you).

How strenuous:

The first part of the route is on flat ground, followed by a steady climb uphill for about 20 minutes. Having reached the top you gently drop down again to the valley floor.

Start & Finish:

The trail begins at the Stubbing Wharf Hotel near Hebden Bridge (HX7 6LU).

The beginning of the trail is best accessed by walking or taking a short bus ride from Hebden Bridge town centre (details inside). If you are coming by car, you can park in the Stubbing Wharf car park, providing you visit the pub at the beginning or end of the walk.
