Meeting time is 10:45 under the departure boards at Manchester Victoria. We'll be getting the 10:58 Northern service, which also stops at Rochdale and Todmorden: https://traintimes.org.uk/manchester/hebden+bridge/09:45/2019-10-12 The cheapest ticket is an off-peak day return which costs £10.50. The Northern Duo discount is available on this route, which means you get 25% off if you buy two tickets at the same time and both passengers travel on the same train there and back. Return trains are frequent so we won't aim to get a specific one, but based on past experience it's likely we'll get back to Manchester for 16:00. The walk involves dirt paths so it might be a bit muddy in places, and there are also a few inclines and a set of steps.
