WALKERS are being invited to go to Castle Hill for a solstice walk on Thursday, December 22.
Castle Hill ranger Julian Brown is hoping the public will join him for a Sun Stands Still Walk to mark the longest night and shortest day of the year.
The walk takes its title from the ancient belief that the sun stood still for 12 days in the middle of winter.
The walk will start at 7.45am from the car park at the top of Castle Hill in Almondbury.
The route is approximately four miles and will take around three hours to complete.
Walkers will need good footwear, warm clothing and waterproofs.
No dogs are allowed except assistance dogs.
CONTACT: The walk is free, but places must be booked in advance by contacting Julian on 07968 426312.
