Cromwell Bottom is a Local Nature Reserve owned by Calderdale Council along the banks of the River Calder between Elland and Brighouse.
The Reserve covers around 25 hectares and is home to a rich variety of wildlife and habitats, many not found anywhere else in Calderdale. The area is popular with visitors who enjoy its quiet nature, but facilities are limited.
The area next to the Nature Reserve known as North Bank Loop is a newly restored former landfill site of around 14 hectares, which could offer potential for development in the future.
Calderdale Council would like your views on how the Cromwell Bottom area could be improved both to conserve wildlife and encourage more visitors.
