    Hardcastle Crags encompasses deep rocky ravines, tumbling streams, oak, beech and pine woods and some of the best examples of upland meadows in the country.

Cross the river on stepping stones and spot birds, insects, amphibians and if you're lucky; deer!

The early 19th century Gibson Mill is situated within the site. A tour of the mill tells the history of the valley and the mill over the past 200 years. The mill also has changing exhibitions throughout the year. Gibson Mill is 100% self-sufficient in energy, water and waste treatment. It has a hydro-electric system, solar photovoltaic panels and a log-burning stove fuelled by wood from the estate. You can also rest and recharge at the Weaving Shed Café, serving delicious ethical and locally-produced food and buy the perfect gift or memento in the shop located there.

In the early 1900s, Gibson Mill began to be used as an ‘entertainment emporium’ for the local people. After the Second World War, the mill slipped into disuse, and was acquired by the National Trust in 1950.

    Famous for its spectacular floral bedding displays, Wellholme Park has something for just about everyone and has been awarded both the coveted 'Green Flag' status and the prestigious 'Queen Elizabeth II Fields' status. Situated close to Brighouse town centre, the park is easy to reach and has free car parking for visitors. Why not take a stroll around the park, sit and relax in the surroundings, enjoy a picnic, or explore the natural woodlands and follow the path of Clifton Beck that runs through the heart of Wellholme? The newly opened cafe offers a place to relax and chat with family and friends over a drink and snack. If you prefer something more energetic, then perhaps enjoy a game of tennis on one of the four courts, or a game of bowls on one of the two crown greens or the flat bowling green. An exciting playground with scramble net, climbing frame, swings and a roundabout gives hours of enjoyment to our younger visitors. A demanding skateboard park is a test for those who like a spot of boarding and for those who prefer something less strenuous then there is a putting green and crazy golf.
