The most adventurous walking route was up the Wessenden Valley. In the 1886 Rates Survey the Halls, farmers of Binn Lodge, were recorded as having a 'Refreshment Room'. Within living memory teas - 'rich repasts' - were served from Wessenden Lodge. George Marsden was probably referring to Wessenden Lodge when he wrote the following advertisement:
Marsden Near Huddersfield
This magnificent beauty spot in Wessenden Valley is within 1½ miles from Marsden Station, and contains 2 reservoirs, constructed for the Huddersfield corporation waterworks, at a cost of nearly half a million of money, and at one glance can be seen scenery second to none in the north of England.
Those braving the stiff climb out of the end of the Wessenden valley sought refreshment at the Isle of Skye Hotel.
