Tod mayor Tony Greenwood, a walker himself, welcomes our Walkers are welcome status at the launch

We’re now officially a ‘Walkers are welcome‘ town.  We had a launch on Sunday 31st July at the Unitarian Church.  There was lots of cake and conversation, about 50 people came.  Full details on our Walkers are welcome page.

Summer 2016:  here’s our latest newsletter!  (and  here’s the earlier Spring newsletter!)

TodWalkers is a group of enthusiastic walkers based in and around Todmorden West Yorkshire, officially formed in March 2015.  We have a constitution (copy here), some people to form a Committee (chair, vice-chair, sCover of our new bus bookletecretary and treasurer).

Our first project, ‘Bus walks’, has now resulted in a handsome booklet that’s on sale.

The aim of TodWalkers is:

  • to encourage recreational walking in the Todmorden area, both for local people and visitors
  • to campaign for better facilities for walkers, including the adequate maintenance of existing footpaths/bridleways and the creation of new footpaths.

In meeting these objectives, TodWalkers will as much as possible seek to encourage the use of public transport.

Our work will be in the form of projects.  See the rest of this website for more details of our current projects.

To become a member of TodWalkers, please contact Penny at penelope.marrington@sigmatwo.co.uk . We’ll send you a form to fill in – and membership is free.


claregeeWalkers in Tod should be aware that the canal towing path from Littleborough to Sowerby Bridge has been eroded in many  places and there are closures all along the route where you have to leave the path. There is a major landslip blocking the Pennine Bridleway on the London Road above Harvelin Park, and there are other minor slips along other paths – so take care!

Rapid progress is being made in the repair and restoration of the Rochdale Canal towpath. If you would like to help, please contact Jon Stopp for details of what you could do, where, and when.
