The National Trust and Yorkshire Water have announced plans for upcoming landscape restoration work at Withens Clough Reservoir, with the chance for locals to help.

Anyone living in Calderdale and looking for the chance to do some hands-on environmental work can get in touch with Landscapes for Water, a partnership project from Yorkshire Water and National Trust.

The project’s team is looking for volunteers to help plant 55,000 trees around Withens Clough Reservoir and Turvin Clough from this autumn, as well as groups who would like to know more about upland conservation in the South Pennines.

The work in and around Cragg Vale will also include the installation of around 400 natural flood management leaky dams, following on from similar conservation work undertaken at Marsden Moor early this year, where 65,000 trees were planted and 1,000 leaky dams are planned.

Anyone who wants to know more is invited to email and get on a dedicated mailing list for community events and volunteering opportunities.

Jess Yorke, Landscapes for Water project lead for National Trust, said: "We’re really excited to get started with our work around Withens Clough Reservoir. We hope that local people will actively engage with us as we’d really value their support."
