The Stanza Stones Ultra is a 50 mile linear route, with over 6800ft of ascent, connecting the towns of Marsden and Ilkley in the South Pennines. The route visits all six Stanza Stones as well as the famous Haworth village, home of the Bronte sisters.

The route covers high moorland as well as dropping into the valleys that carve through them. Along the way, as well as the 6 Stanza Stones, you will follow parts of the Pennine Way, Stoodley Pike, Haworth and Ilkley Moor where here you will come across more locally famous stones and circles.
