THIS lovely walk through the woods in Brockholes is now far easier thanks to Kirklees Council.
The path through Hagg Wood, alongside the River Holme, used to be tough and potentially dangerous after part of the banking collapsed.
But Kirklees Council has now restored the footpath to turn the stroll into a great quarter-of-a-mile walk.
Ken Kaye, who lives in Brockholes, said: “This is now the beauty spot in Brockholes.
Kirklees Council comes in for a lot of criticism and gets very little credit so I wanted to show what a good job they have done here.
“A few years ago part of the banking collapsed and it made the walk next to the river quite dangerous. Now Kirklees has shored the banking back up and it’s safe once again. It’s a very pleasant walk and a real attraction to both local people and visitors to the area.’’
Holme Valley Camping and Caravan Park is next to the river at the end of the walk.
The walk starts at Lancaster Lane bridge in Brockholes and finishes near the old Rock Mills factory site off Smithy Place Lane.
