Route Directions

  • Starting from the outside of Haworth Railway Station, cross the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway using the footbridge on the left side of the station.

  • Head right following the sign marked "The Worth Way"

  • Follow the path until it opens out to a field.

  • Cross the field following the clear walkway through the middle.  If you've got dogs, be careful as there is usually cattle on the right side of the field.
