One Thus Gone

A tree lined incline with a metal sign of poetry in the foreground.

Take a mindful and contemplative journey on this woodland trail and discover a series of short poems written specifically for Hardcastle Crags.

This woodland trail has been developed in partnership with the University of Huddersfield to help explore different ways to experience the woodland. These 8 poems invite you to take your time on a stroll through the trees and explore sensory and contemplative ways to deepen your experience with nature.

Walking up from the car parks at the end of Midgehole Road, you’ll find the first information on the gate post. Follow the instructions and enjoy the poems along the way, taking your time to enjoy your natural surroundings.

The final poem is just before the path returns you to the estate track, leading down to Gibson Mill. Pop into the café and warm up with a nice, hot drink as you reflect on your time in the woodland.
