July 6th Walk to view Hay Meadow Restoration at Widdop Road

Halifax Scientific Society walk, Wednesday 6th July: Hay Meadow Restoration
A walk and visit to the National Trust Hay Meadows

Please meet at the National Trust Clough Foot Car Park, Widdop Road. There is a charge for non-National Trust members.
We will be walking for about 20 minutes along the road to the National Trust hay meadows where we will meet Drew Marsh, National Trust Ranger who will explain the methods used by the National Trust and the RSPB for restoring the hay meadows.  We will then have the opportunity to walk through the meadows to try and ID plant species.
Afterwards, you can spend more time in Hardcastle Crags or alternatively, folk can return by the same path we took at the beginning.


Please note:
The walk will be approximately a couple of hours, but longer if you wish to stay in the Hardcastle Crags area.
·         Dogs are welcome, as are children
·         Bring a packed lunch/drink etc.
·         There is a carparking charge for non-National Trust members at Clough Foot

  1. Charlotte managed to attract 18 people on this walk, and it was a great success. A new plant for Calderdale was found on the grass verge on Widdop Road - Marsh Cinqefoil - which we have only seen in one other place locally - at Walsden, where it is just outside the Calderdale recording area.
