Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

From the car park at Low Bradfield the route goes up past the church and onto the derelict farm at Rocher Head before tuning down to the far end of Agden Reservoir. The walk continues on paths round the far end of the reservoir through woods to Windy Bank and after a short climb you descend on a path down to Dale Dike Reservoir. The path continues to the South Eastern bank of the reservoir via some Victorian Weirs and buildings. After walking by the reservoir for a few hundred yards you turn up into the woods and then onto Sugworth Tower. The walk goes up to Moscar before heading back to the start on paths and country lanes via Ughill Moor and Dale Dike.
