Join the Calderdale Heritage Walks every fortnight until March 2020

Posted on Updated on

Even walks in Brighouse attract walkers from further afield so why not join in a fun activity that combines gentle exercise with fascinating insight into the history of Calderdale?

Walks take place every second Sunday on a fortnightly basis. Each walk has its own topic of interest and takes place in a different part of Calderdale. All welcome to join, all levels of fitness welcome.
Walks that are wheelchair accessible are marked as such.

December walks:

  • December 1st: Big ‘Cs’ IN RIPPONDEN:  Church, catastrophe, conflict, cooperation, Chartism and more. Ripponden had them all!
  • December 15th: Brighouse Extends Northwards: In the 1800s Brighouse expanded rapidly particularly to the north. Many buildings from that period are still in use, some with rich histories. Wheelchair accessible.
  • December 29th: How Hebden Bridge: The story behind the growth of the town and the changes that have taken place. Wheelchair accessible.

For more information, take a look at the Calderdale Walks or visit CalderdaleHeritageWalks.org.uk

Accelerating Community-led Housing in Calderdale

Posted on

All over the country, community-led housing groups are springing up and tackling the housing crisis head on, delivering quality, affordable homes that meet local needs.

The Government has recognised that communities know their local areas better than anyone – and are perfectly placed to make things happen.

Until March 2020 Calder Valley Community Land Trust, in partnership with Calderdale Council, is offering FREE support and advice to help community-led groups develop the homes we need.

We can help if you are:

  • A group or community organisation wanting to tackle a housing need in your area
  • Interested in developing homes for yourself with like minded people
  • Or have or know of a great site for affordable homes

How can we help?

  • Advice for new or existing groups interested in developing community-led housing
  • Signposting to resources including help with accessing finance
  • Bringing people together through a local network
