Walking has tremendous benefits for your health:
- It improves your cardiovascular fitness.
- It helps prevent heart disease, strokes and osteoporosis.
- It improves your sense of well-being, boosts your metabolism and helps you sleep better.
And walking consumes a surprising amount of energy. A gentle 30 minute walk, with some hillside to make you puff, burns about 125 calories. A 30 minute brisk walk burns around 160.
Mytholmroyd is a small town in the Upper Calder Valley with a population of 5,000. It acts as a major employment centre, and our guesstimate is that over 2,000 people work locally - mainly in the dozen locations above. With much employment tucked away up Cragg Vale, the scale of local business is Mytholmroyd's hidden secret. Yet within minutes, everyone can be up onto the hillside enjoying the glorious views up and down Calder Valley.
