Help to build a map of Calderdale’s historic water infrastructure

Request for help to build a map of Calderdale’s historic water infrastructure (26 August)

The Environment Agency is appealing for help from historians, landowners and communities in the Calder Valley to help produce a detailed map of old land drains, goits and mill ponds to determine whether they could be brought back into use to aid the fight against flooding.

As well as identifying the locations of the old water control structures and drains, the Environment Agency is seeking details of their depth, size and condition.

People with information can post this on the Calderdale heritage website.
