Poetry on stone
Completed in 2012 the Stanza Stones project resulted in a trail of stones with poems carved into them inspired by the landscape. There are 7 stones in total that can be done on a 47 mile walk. Alternatively there are 7 shorter walks you can do to see any of them individually.
At less then a mile from Todmorden it is only a short ride back to Shoebroad Barn, A beautiful self catering accommodation set in the heart of it all. Instead of leaving it all behind, you can put your feet up and still see stunning views from your door step.
