Information on countryside services and nature reserves in Calderdale.
Established in 2013, Calderdale's Local Access Forum works with the Council to improve public access to land used for open-air recreation. The areas of interest of members includes walking, climbing, horse riding and cycling, and the forum considers how these activities can be promoted and developed sustainably.
The landscape of Calderdale provides a unique and very rich blend of natural history, industrial heritage and important areas of outstanding natural scenery.
