Calderdale Heritage Walks Summer Programme 2019

Posted on Updated on

 

 

The summer programme has fortnightly walks plus extra ones including Bank Holiday Mondays.
No pre-booking required, just turn up and pay the Guide – its £3 (all ages).

Almost all starting points are served by public transport. Well behaved dogs on leads are allowed on walks unless indicated by the No Dogs symbol.

There are still a few walks from the Winter Programme with the next on;

Sunday 3 March – The North Side of Elland.

Elland goes back to at least 1086 yet in 1760 much of the land was open land. In the century that followed, the arrival of canal, railway, new roads, industry and more housing changed things radically.
Meet Ian Philp at 1:30pm by St. Mary’s Parish Church, HX5 0BW for the latest Calderdale Heritage Walk.

Keep an eye on the Facebook page to see any late alterations.

The complete Summer Walks Programme as shown below can be downloaded here.

Norland Moor Management Plan Consultation

Posted on Updated on

Norland Moor is held high in the affections of the local population and the wide variety of different user groups that embrace its sense of open space, views and peace. Although widely considered as a natural and wild place, Norland Moor is a product of thousands of years of human influence and natural processes, and offers a home to a variety of specialist plants and animals.

It is the largest outdoor resource owned by Calderdale Council, and like many natural and semi-natural places is confronted by a number of challenging issues.
The 2018-2028 draft management plan explores these concerns, and sets out the management context and the proposed mechanisms for addressing them.
This Management Plan is open for consultation from Wednesday 1 August to Thursday 4 October, and is available to view or download as the Norland Moor Draft Management Plan 2018-2028 [PDF 6549KB]

Responses to the draft management plan can either be made by email: NorlandMoor2018@calderdale.gov.uk or in writing: Countryside Service, Spring Hall Mansion, Huddersfield Road, HX3 0AQ.

It will not be possible to reply to every individual response. If you would like us to keep you up to date with the management of Norland Moor and the consultation process, please email the above address (with your comments, if any) an acceptance of the following General Data Protection Regulations:-
Due to changes in data protection regulations we would like to verify that you are happy for us to contact you about Norland Moor consultation and other matters relating to the Moor. Please indicate within your response that you would be happy for us to contact you in future if you would like to receive updates.  If we don’t receive this permission, we will delete your contact details from our list. We will refresh our mailing list on an annual basis.
