What we are about
The River Holme forms the backbone of the unique rural and industrial heritage of this corner of West Yorkshire. Stretching for 16 miles from heather moorland through market towns and villages to Huddersfield town. River 2015 is keen to restore the River Holme and its tributaries to a clean, accessible and appealing haven for wildlife, people and businesses. We want to celebrate the industrial heritage of our past, transform the river corridor into a network of greenways linking people and places in our lovely valley. We are following a catchment-based approach which means every tributary and stream that feeds in the River Holme.
The middle of Holmfirth is over-crowded with weed trees. We aim to reduce these trees and replant native species along the river.
Views across the Holme Valley are stunning and being able to sit beside the river provides tranquility, we will improve access and provide seating facilities so everyone can enjoy the river.
Wild trout is common already within the river Holme, we woud like to see a greater range of fish and are working closely with the Wild Trout Trust and Calder and Colne River Trust to achieve this.
