Bullet point Walk Through Time photo tour!

To the left of the path, you will see Trippet Wood.

This is an ancient woodland, which means there has been natural woodland on the site for at least 400 years, and probably since the last Ice Age, which is known as the Devensian and began around 110,000 years ago, before ending around 10,000 years ago.

Yorkshire Water works

At the entrance point to the second part of the Porter Valley path, and for about 100 yards along, the path will be unavailable for about 16 weeks from early September 2004.

An alternative access path, which runs parallel to the affected stretch, will be available to use, except for five days towards the end of the works, when a diversion route will be signposted. For more information call Yorkshire Water on 0845-1242424.
