My name is Jo Bird. I am an experienced walking guide and regularly guide walking holidays throughout the UK. I have walked and lived in the Hebden Bridge area of the Calder Valley and South Pennines for many years, although originally come from the London area. I am a member of the British Mountaineering Council and an accredited hill and moor walking group leader (Mountain Training)
I have always loved walking both alone and with groups, and have trekked in Nepal, Peru and New Zealand. I love encouraging others enjoy being outdoors and exploring the hills, moors, valleys and woods of the local area. I maintain an up to date outdoor first aid qualification and have public liability insurance
My partner and I also run a B&B in Hebden Bridge which is only a few minutes walk from the centre of town. So if visiting the area, you may want to combine using our accommodation as well as booking a guided walk!
