MAGDALE FIELDS
       The Village Trust owns a large tract of land known as Magdale Fields, adjacent to the River Holme.  This is a popular beauty spot  and gives access to Magdale Dam,  also owned by the Trust.  Several local walks start from this point including Holme Valley Riverside Way.
Magdale Fields also gives  access to Stones Wood, an area of woodland adjoining it and which is also managed by the Trust.
Local Youth Groups are welcome to visit and a Trust member is usually available as  escort. 
Contact:- info@honleyvillagetrust.org.uk
 
The upkeep of Magdale Fields and Magdale Dam cost a considerable amount each year although this cost is reduced by the number of willing volunteers. If you would like to join them meet at the Cemetery Chapel 10am 2nd Sunday of every month or call Neil 0776 674 2140
If you would like to help in another way we would appreciate your donation. Thank you
