TPTcv Penistone-Dunford Bridge
Our group formed on 6th Nov 2011. Since then we have been working hard to increase the number of volunteers caring for this stretch of the TPT maintain the Trail as a pleasant natural environment for the benefit of all its users. We work closely with Sustrans and BMBC and offer opportunities for corporate volunteering as well.
Our objectives are to conserve, maintain, and enhance the physical and natural environment of the Trans Pennine Trail (between Penistone and Dunford Bridge) and its immediate surroundings, for the benefit of wildlife, biodiversity, and the general public.
We try to have workdays on the first Saturday and on at least two Wednesdays of each month from 10 am to 4 pm.
Over the last year we have been removing self-seeded trees (mainly goat willow) to restore light and space to sections of the trail, thereby restoring habitats and enabling wildflowers to flourish and providing a diversity of spaces for wildlife to flourish. This has also improved opportunities to see the countryside along the trail and appreciate waterfalls and valleys that were previously hidden from view.
We have also started improving facilities along the trail by providing information boards, picnic areas (at Bullhouse and Hazelhead) and additional seats. We are working with others to improve the trail surface. We have lost count of the amount of rubbish we have removed! Happily this is exceeded by the number of new habitats we have created for small animals, birds and invertebrates.
