Starting from Penistone Hill Country Park and heading towards Top Withens the upper reaches of Ponden Clough and Stanbury Moor.


Starting from the quarry bottom on Penistone, the route heads out along the Bronte Way then just past the ruins of Middle Intake Farm it turns right down the hillside to cross the beck. Its then up the inevitably muddy climb to reach the track continuing from Back Lane. Then its left, uphill on a good track, past Upper Heights farm and continuing on to the ruins of Top Withins.  Go past and round to find the footpath that then leads to the summit of Delf Hill and the trig point.  Here turn sharp right and begin to descend crossing some swampy ground to rejoin the outward path by a small stone bridge.  Now retrace the route back towards the start. Just after you pass Middle Intake farm, bear right off the track and onto the path to take the shortest way back to the finish line on the cricket pitch.
