Clifton Beck, a water body feeding onto the river Calder at Brighouse, has been earmarked as a water body in need of improvement.
Calder and Colne Rivers Trust is a key partner in this Heritage Lottery Funded project aiming to improve the beck’s condition from “moderate” to “good” through a range of practical tasks and community engagement.

Calder and Colne Rivers Trust is partnering with other organizations such as Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and the Environment Agency to deliver this 18 month project.



About The Project

The project will work with local land managers, the local community and schools to improve 64 hectares of habitat along three sites of the beck, including a locally important community green space, Wellholme Park.

The project will be running a series of Community Events, Practical Volunteer Work days, Invertebrate Monitoring Training and Survey Days as well as Educational Events throughout the projects
