River Worth Restoration
The River Worth Restoration is a wide-reaching project that seeks to identify opportunities for river restoration, access improvements and increasing volunteer engagement along the River Worth.
The project will conclude in 2025 (although delivery will have been scaled back in the latter stages of the project). It is intended that it will develop future fundable projects.
Bringing new life into our town
Like many of our urban rivers the River Worth and the streams that flow into it (its tributaries) has been shaped by the industrial growth of a typical West Yorkshire town, Keighley. Our urban waterways find themselves pinned in behind mills and factories, choked by weirs that once powered these vital parts of our economy and suffering from pollution from urban runoff and sewage treatment.
Volunteers caring for their river
We want to support local volunteers to care for their river with training, volunteering opportunities and support
Shaping the future of the river
Skilled project workers will collect data and develop long-term plans for the river and seek funding to create a river of change
This project is part funded by the Keighley Towns Fund and Keighley Big Local, supported with funding from Enforcement Undertakings.
