Bottoms Mill Footpath Improvements

A mile upstream from Holmfirth is Bottoms Mill. A haven for wildlife, the existing public footpath was neglected and difficult to access.

Our work

We resurfaced the public footpath along the river, which is part of the Holme Valley Riverside Trail. This was achieved thanks to help from volunteers, including Kirklees Countryside Volunteers.

More improvements to come

We've secured funding to improve access to Bottoms Mill and make it a more inviting place to visit. Found out more about our ongoing Bottoms Mill project and how you can get involved.
