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.
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
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
