Windswept heather moorlands, stupendous views from the ‘Tops’, beautiful wooded valleys, a web of becks and streams flowing into the River Calder. Red Grouse, Golden Plover, Twite, deer, otters … all to see.
Even in our towns, parks and gardens there are opportunities for wildlife to thrive alongside people. What a place to explore, and conserve.
