CROWS – Community Rights Of Way Service


CROWSCROWS is a group of volunteers who maintain and improve the
Footpath network in the Upper Calder and Ryburne valleys. We clear vegetation, build stiles, gates and boardwalks, deal with drainage and way-mark routes. We also monitor and survey paths. We currently work on Wednesdays and Fridays from about 9.30-2.30 from our base in Mytholmroyd.

At the moment we are particularly short of people who can work on Fridays. In addition we have nobody from Heptonstall in the group, so we feel that we are missing some local knowledge.

Stella started working with CROWS earlier this year & says: “it’s great to have a regular date to work outdoors with a nice bunch of people who have local knowledge, experience & expertise to share. We get a lot done – you can see the fruits of your labours after each day which is very satisfying. And we are often working on a path I’ve never been on before, despite walking in this area for over 30 years.
