WALKERS will benefit from a new forest path.
A circular track is being built around Pig Hill Wood at Nettleton Hill near Golcar.
Kirklees Council is spending £45,000 on the 1.6-mile path, which will be finished in three weeks.
Colne Valley Lib Dem Clr Nicola Turner said: “Our network of paths attracts many visitors each year who come to enjoy the walks, fresh air, scenery and wildlife.
“By investing in them we are supporting the continued growth of the Colne Valley as a tourist destination and ensuring that local businesses continue to benefit from visitors coming to the area.
“One of the Colne Valley’s greatest assets – apart from its people – is its wonderful environment and we really should make the most out of it.
“My colleagues and I in the Colne Valley are very much looking forward to seeing the route completed in the near future.”
