Wear boots! There is some tough walking here.
We recall the poetry of the controversial 1980s/1990s poet laureate with this guided tour of his West Yorkshire haunts.
The tour starts at Mytholmroyd station so that we can visit Ted’s birthplace, and the sights and sites of his childhood. After a half an hour or so in Mytholmroyd and along the canal we bus it to Hebden Bridge and the Stubbing Wharf pub, commemorated (and condemned) in verse.
A quick break for liquid reinforcement we’re off into the hills to find Lumb Bank, home of the Arvon Centre, an 18th Century mill-owner’s property where Ted lived.
