A 3 mile circular walk around the wooded Pennine valley of Hardcastle Crags, near Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire. Owned by the National Trust the valley comprises a beautiful shallow river, Hebden Water with steep wooded valley sides and you will have chance to discover lots of wildlife plus some industrial archaeology along the way. If you have children with you, you may wish to bring along crayons and paper as there are several engraved markers around the site, showing the various leaves and seeds in the woodland.
Want a dog but work?
Have you always wanted a dog but are worried about leaving them alone whilst you are at work? If so, we have the perfect solution for you.
In Bielby, East Yorkshire you’ll find a Hearing Dogs training centre.
Here our wonderful and intelligent dogs learn how to transform the lives of deaf people. We teach them how to alert to important sounds such as the doorbell and alarm clock, plus danger signals like the smoke alarm. Hearing dogs also offer emotional support to deaf people which make them valued and vital companions.
During their four month soundwork training we need bed and breakfast volunteers to offer our hearing dogs a place to stay and relax in overnight and at weekends.
You would simply need to bring the dog to our centre in Bielby each morning during their training and collect them at the end of their working day. We even supply the bed and breakfast!
