A Visit to Cromwell Bottom

Wednesday 2nd November 2022

A former quarry, landfill site and ash tip do not sound like the location of one of Calderdale’s best-kept secrets. Cromwell Bottom Nature Reserve, however, is just that! Taking advantage of its ash-rich soil and abundant water, it is home to some of Calderdale’s most diverse habitats for fauna and flora. Surrounded by the river Calder and the canal, it really is a hidden gem, highlighted by our recent guided tour and video below!
