The walk starts in the small village of Diggle, near the rail and canal tunnels under the Pennines between Greater Manchester and Yorkshire. It climbs out of Diggle via rough tracks and paths to cross one of the main routes between the two counties (A62). It then drops down towards two reservoirs (Castleshaw) via an urban road. After passing the reservoirs it follows a stream to Delph. It leaves Delph via an urban road before starting to climb over the hill again via a lane. From the top of the hill the walk drops back down to Diggle via several paths before reaching the canal. The final stretch is alongside the Huddersfield Narrow Canal. The height gain ensures some fabulous views down the valleys of Saddleworth. It follows part of the Pennine Bridleway. There are two high points on this walk.
