Jerusalem Farm and Wade Wood

Luddenden Brook, Jerusalem Farm

Jerusalem Farm and Wade Wood includes 13 hectares of nature reserve.

The Calderdale Way passes by the site and there are also permissive paths through the woodland; access into the woods from the car park is via a steep grass track. The camp site is located near Booth Village, just to the north of Luddenden.

What to see

Wade Wood and the surrounding landscape is home to a variety of woodland birds such as Nuthatches, Tree Creepers, Goldfinch, Robins and Woodpeckers. Quiet visitors may catch a sight of deer. The site also has a wide variety of woodland fungi in the autumn months.

We’re also known for our midges on summer evenings so don’t forget the midge repellent!
