Summary: The Cal-Der-Went Walk is a long distance footpath which was created by Geoffrey Carr . The route links the River Calder (West Yorkshire) and River Derwent (South Yorkshire and Derbyshire) and in doing so it crosses the Pennine moors and the watersheds and valleys of the Calder, Dearne, Don and Derwent rivers.
