Stanza Stone Trail

October 5 @ 9:30 am October 7 @ 4:00 pm

The Stanza Stones trail is a 47 mile trail along the Pennine watershed between the village of Marsden and Ilkley Town Centre. The trail links 6 special stones that are engraved with the poetic words of Simon Armitage; the UK’s poet laureate.

The Stanza Stones poems were commissioned by Ilkely Literature Festival in 2010 to embody the Pennine landscape, and reveal the forces that made it. The poems were engraved by hand into the gritstone landscape that inspired them, creating the Stanza Stones. Linking them together is known as the Stanza Stones trail. 

Tinkadventures would like to invite you trek the Stanza Stones trail with us to discover the Stones, and enjoy the epic and wild Yorkshire landscape. We know these hills well, they are our home as we are based in Marsden.

The walk will take 3 days and visit all 6 stones. Not only that but we will get you to Ilkley, just in time for the Literature Festival itself.

The trek will is led by our expert Mountain Leaders that are qualified, insured and highly experienced. All you need to do is come with sense of adventure; we’ll do the rest.
