Take part in a scenic spring-time walk at Castle Hill

The scenic walk around Castle Hill has been planned to help celebrate the arrival of Springtime.

Castle Hill is arguable one of the most iconic landmarks in Huddersfield.

On a clear day, you can see for miles across the rolling hills – and it makes for some great Insta-ready photo opportunities.

As we hopefully leave winter behind and head into Spring it is a perfect opportunity to head out and take in the breath-taking views from this incredible location.

Castle Hill Ranger Julian Brown is inviting people to join him on an invigorating walk to celebrate the arrival of Springtime on Monday 21st March.

The scenic six-mile route which travels along some ancient footpaths will take in the colourful springtime views of Huddersfield from the vantage point of Castle Hill and surrounding areas.

The guided walk, which will last approximately three hours, is also an opportunity to see the rich variety of new emerging springtime plants and flowers and local wildlife habitats.

Anyone wishing to join the walk will need a moderate level of fitness and dogs are not allowed unless they are assistance dogs.
