Path problems


If you come across a problem with a path you have two options:

1. Contact the rights of way section at Calderdale Council

01422 288002

Rights of Way, Town Hall, PO Box 51, HALIFAX HX1 1TP.

CROWS Brearley path2. Contact CROWS , the Community Rights of Way Service, based in the Upper Calder Valley.   They write (in February 2016):

The floods and torrential rain this winter have caused a huge amount of damage to footpaths in Todmorden and the Upper Calder Valley.

CROWS (Community Rights of Way Services) are prioritising the repair of other paths damaged by the rain and floods.

CROWS have a list of paths they need to repair from all over the area, but they need the public’s help to identify problems that they know are out there. So make it easy, they have just introduced a new simple system for people to contact us.

There are now 4 ways to report a problem to CROWS:

  • Call their new Path problem line on 0784 964 0784 and leave a message (why not put this number in your contact list?)

  • Send a message through the CROWS Facebook page

  • Email (a photo of the problem would help)

  • Leave a note at Mountain Wild, Hebden Bridge or White Ribbon in Mytholmroyd or at Todmorden Visitor centre

Please tell us about any problem, not just those related to flood damage.

CROWS website is here – you can email them, or complete the form you can download from their website.
