Height Gate set in pasture Stoodley Pike
Height Gate is surrounded by four acres of pasture, owned by the centre.

With the Pennine Way only a few hundred yards away and the open moorland of Langfield Common even closer at hand, Height Gate is ideally located for groups wanting to explore this beautiful area of the South Pennines. The Stoodley Pike obelisk, a well-known local landmark, is a short scramble from the centre.
A network of footpaths, including some paved ‘causey paths’ (old packhorse routes), criss-cross the hillside. There are also delightful wooded cloughs to explore, and in the Calder Valley itself the picturesque Rochdale Canal can be followed both to Todmorden and Hebden Bridge. The Brontë village of Haworth is a day’s hike away.
Curlews nest in the fields near Height Gate in the spring, and peregrine falcons also breed in the area.
