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.

Starting from the car park at Shelf Hall Park, Bridal Stile, Halifax HX3 7NW, this is a superb ramble on the south western outskirts of Bradford, on field paths and old lanes, through mature woodland, with interesting old houses. The walk is undulating, mainly on good tracks and footpaths with the occasional field and a number of stiles, some quite narrow. If there has been recent snow or rain be prepared for mud or slipperiness underfoot. Wooden steps are built into a couple of short sharp inclines and declines.
