Visit the lovely National Trust hay meadows and find out just what is growing in them with the help of Ranger Natalie Pownall. The current glorious weather may have had an adverse effect on the species growing in the meadows, but let’s see what we can find!

Meet at 10.30am Clough Hole Car Park, Widdop Road, Hebden Bridge HX7 7AZ, then a half mile walk along the road to the hay meadows.  Car park charge of £5 for non-members of the National Trust, but new members signed up on the day will have the charge reimbursed.  Very sorry, but no dogs please.  Nearest loo is at Gibson Mill.  Stay for as long as you like up to 3pm.  Bring a picnic.

PS.  And yes, you’re quite right, the picture ISN’T of Hardcastle Crags, but was taken a few weeks ago when the meadows were looking good at Mytholmroyd!
