CROWS volunteers are passionate about maintaining, improving and repairing footpaths and bridleways. We work in the Upper Calder Valley and the Ripponden/Ryburn area.

If you want to keep in touch with what we have been doing, look at our Blog  which describes our work and has action photos (including some leaning on shovel pictures!).
