A LEAFLET to help people get the most out of a visit to Scammonden Water is now available from Kirklees outlets.
The full colour picture booklet aims to encourage people to explore the wildlands and features photographs of its wild flowers, insects and spiders and birds.
There is also a map showing the rights of way, informal footpaths and car parks that allow the public to get closer to nature and enjoy the reservoir which lies alongside the M62 above Slaithwaite.
It also details areas of rush pasture, existing plantation, new woodland, scrub and heath as well as historical landmarks and settlements.
Scammonden Water is part of the White Rose Forest project to improve and care for the environment of West Yorkshire.
As one of the five local authorities in West Yorkshire, Kirklees is a partner in the White Rose Forest and is working with Yorkshire Water and the tenant farmer to develop and regenerate Scammonden Water for both public benefit and biodiversity.
