    About the Calorie Calculator

    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.

    About

    Starting from the Junction Inn in West Scholes, the walk is part of the Bradford Ring Walks from a book published in 1982, the walk progresses from Queensbury northward to Thornton, then to Shay gate and the beauty spot at Chellow Dean before turning south again to take you back to the start.
    The terrain is partly road, fields and tracks. There are three short sharp embankments to navigate, a number of still streams and undulations.
    If wet your walking poles may be advantageous. A scenic route never far from civilisation. Four of the Brontes were born in Thornton.
