Summer 2022 see the trust begin an exciting new project to clear the historic Shipley Glen and the Loadpit Beck of Himalayan Balsam. A non-native plant that is taking over our river banks. Stopping our native plants from growing and leading to our river banks eroding in Winter.
During the months of June and July, we will be working hard to remove Balsam from the Glen. Starting from the top at Eldwick and working our way down to Hirst Weir and Bradford Amateur Rowing Club.
For this workday, we will be meeting and parking on Glen Road, Baildon, in the Laybys outside Bracken Hall Countryside Centre, Glen Rd, Baildon, Shipley BD17 5EA. What 3 words reference: ///grad.animals.smuggled
