CROWS volunteers improve and repair footpaths in the Upper Calder and Ripponden areas. To see what we have been doing in your area look at the latest news on our Blog. You can also see highlights of our work if you follow us on Facebook (facebook.com/CROWSpaths).
If you want to know more about us, have a look at this short video of an interview with one of our members in 2020.
The video is from “My Calderdale” published by Pathway Film Productions.
Please donate to CROWS
We are a charity with hard-working dedicated volunteers. We need your support to continue our work of maintaining and improving our footpaths so they remain accessible to everyone.
We are registered with the Charity Commission (RCN 1201645) and with HMRC (Ref EW21852). We can receive Gift Aid on your donation through just Giving, but there are lots of other ways to make a donation, both one-off or regular. Whichever you choose, any amount helps. Many thanks.
Please tell us about a problem with a path
Please tell us about problems you encounter whilst out walking in the Upper Calder and Ryburne Valley area. You can do this with one of our quick and simple report forms on the page: Report a problem .
What we’ve achieved
CROWS volunteers work in teams of two or three, and since we started in October 2013 our teams have spent…
- 83 days building bridges and boardwalks
- 200 days repairing stiles
- 221 days building steps
- 262 days widening and levelling paths
- 320 days digging drains
- 337 days cutting back brambles and nettles, hawthorn and holly
- The volume of mud and mulch removed from paths is incalculable!
