The route starts at Denby Dale rail station and follows track and field-paths to Upper Cumberworth, where there is an opportunity to see St Nicholas Parish Church and excellent stone-built houses typical of the area. Then again along field-paths, with splendid views of the surrounding countryside. The route is over the top of Cumberworth Rail Tunnel with views of Emley Moor Transmitter mast looming large on the skyline. Then it's along the Kirklees Way to Shepley. A typical West Yorkshire village, with fine stone-built older houses with some new build, the village was famous for its tailoring and clothing industry, using woollen cloth from the nearby towns.
The walk can be done as a linear route or as a circular one, by combining with the return route.
