Haworth Moor

Hike across some of the loveliest landscapes in Yorkshire. #walkshire

Haworth Moor is arguably one of the jewels in the Yorkshire crown of beautiful places to visit.

At the height of Summer, this rugged landscape of Haworth Moor wakens to a stunning bed of purple heather which swiftly vanishes again as fast as it came. It’s personality is driven by the season and the weather on the day, so don’t get caught out. The weather can change quickly on the exposed tops so do come prepared for all eventualities.

Care For The Countryside

Thank you in advance for following these basic requests when visiting the moor. x

  • Park in public car parks like Penistone Hill (for free) and not on residential streets or country lanes. It really helps.
  • Don’t use BBQs or open flame stoves of any kind. Our heather moorland is precious and we want to keep it.
  • Take your litter home. It’s yours.
  • Keep dogs on leads to protect sheep and nesting birds.

After your long walk, you may be ready for a hearty lunch or a few treats. Please support the independent Haworth shops, cafes and pubs wherever you can. It directly supports jobs in the local economy and is really appreciated.
