The Denby Dale to Shepley Trail
An easy 4-mile walk from Denby Dale station to Shepley Station. Stout footwear is advisable.
Denby Dale and Shepley stations are on the Penistone Line, along which trains run from Huddersfield to Penistone, Barnsley, Meadowhall and Sheffield.
The Huddersfield to Penistone section in particular is a wonderfully scenic line through beautiful countryside. It climbs 367 feet during its thirteen and a half miles and boasts four impressive viaducts and six tunnels. The first trains ran on 1st July 1850, when the line was part of the Lancashire and Yorkshire railway.
