Farnley Tyas

Together, we will explore the beautiful countryside that surrounds this iconic Kirklees landmark. The walk is 5 ½ miles including the hike to the top for our free pop-up coffee stop, while we admire the view.

And all good walks should start and finish at a good pub for a pint, and this will be no exception. We’ll meet, at the beautiful Golden Cock in Farnley Tyas, and for those that want to, we’ll stop for a drink after.
