An online walk and ride guide

STUNNING South Pennine landscapes offer all those wishing to get fit and healthy the perfect place in which to walk or ride - and a walk and ride website, funded through the rural regeneration company Pennine Prospects, is one place to start the search.

The website - www.walkridesouthpennines.co.uk - is free to access and offers over 200 routes for walkers, cyclists and horse riders, of all different abilities.

The fifth annual South Pennines Walk and Ride Festival, which includes the Todmorden and Hebden bridge areas, will be held between September 8 and 23 this year.
