On 29th April KFA Huddersfield and Halifax members and friends, along with volunteers and friends of CREW (the branch charity), enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing walk around Crowmwell Bottom Nature Reserve.
We headed up through the fairy glen, noting the stone setts and grooved paving where the cart-wheels would have transported stone from the quarries, passing lovely views across to Holme Moss, Emley Moor and beyond and down into Elland Park Woods for the wonderful sight and scent of English bluebells, finally joining the canal towpath for our return to Cromwell Bottom.
The weather remained dry, however the previous days rain and off road vehicles had left some sloping muddy tracks which proved a fun challenge. It was a pleasure to have some furry friends on the walk too.
Afterwards most stayed to continue the chatter and meet others who did not attend the walk for a well deserved lunch at Toby Carvery.
The branch raised £110 for their local charity CREW based in Halifax.
We hope to see you at another one of our events.
The next one is our Garden Party on 29th July.
