Stay tuned for our exciting new project at Broadhead Clough, Cragg Vale, Mytholmroyd!  

Broadhead Clough Nature Reserve is our local Yorkshire Wildlife Trust site, a gorgeous mature upland woodland in Mytholmroyd’s beautiful Cragg Vale (yes, of Cragg Vale Coiners/BBC series The Gallows Pole fame!). Broadhead Clough is an excellent example of clough woodland, typical of the South Pennines.

We had a successful taster day on 17th September where we introduced the site along with Connor at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust to a super group of volunteers, it was an opportunity to see where we will be working, gather materials for future sessions and really see where we can make a difference with natural flood management techniques in this steep woodland.

This project sees an exciting new volunteering format for Slow The Flow; we are proud to have worked with Todmorden Climate Challenge College to develop an ASDAN accredited course for our dedicated Broadhead Clough volunteers, who will receive their certification following short written and practically assessed volunteer sessions. 

More information can be found here and stay tuned to our channels for the course dates.
