A640 New Hey Rd (into Sowood)

A beautiful corridor that begins in Denshaw and climbs past the Dowry Reservoir to Buckstones and onto Sowood, the views from the car park at the summit of the climb are fantastic on a clear day. The corridor in total is 14.5km long and incorporates the road of Marsden Gate to Sowood, with 265m of climbing and 250m descending on offer this is a great route into Calderdale. At Buckstones there is the option to take the B6114 as an alternative as this is a great corridor in its own right. From Sowood it is possible to descend through Stainland and Holywell Green to the village of West Vale.
