We are open to everyone
Discover the fascinating history of how the landscape has been developed over the centuries by the people working in it. Learn more about the local agriculture, mining, quarrying and textiles, the political power of the monasteries and natural resource of the River Nidd. This is a complex historic environment with a great variety of man-made landscape features to complement the natural flora, fauna and countryside which give the area such character.
Our speaker meetings
There are subjects to interest everyone ranging from The Mills of Nidderdale and The Railway of Scar House through to Grouse Moors around Middlesmoor and My Life in Music at Batley Variety Club! One of the joys is coming along to all of the meetings and being surprised to discover new interests. The meetings are regularly attended by upwards of 60 people – we’d be delighted if you joined us.

Our social walks
