The Calder at Calder BridgeFrom the car park head towards the church. Just in front of the church turn left onto a signposted footpath that runs alongside the Calder for half a mile.

Calder Abbey houseThis path brings us up to Calder Abbey House, a privately owned mansion. Although a path does continue on past the front of the house (and is now fenced off from the grounds), this is where the right of way ends, so we retrace our steps back down the river.
