Nidderdale Plus Partnership

As we look forward to the Tour de Yorkshire in May 2015, we’re delighted to be promoting our very own Tour de Nidderdale,  a ‘figure of eight’ route centred on Pateley Bridge, equally enjoyable when undertaken by bicycle, motorcycle or by car. The route can be tackled in a single ride or split into two loops. It has been designed with the experienced cyclist in mind but can be equally well enjoyed by the motorist.

The Tour guide can be downloaded here Tour de Nidderdale route and includes details of places of interest along the route, as well as an invitation to ‘spot’ the green and gold plaques that are proudly displayed in many of our villages celebrating the Tour de France in our area.

Printed copies of the Tour are also available at the Nidderdale Plus office and the Masham Community Office.

A family-run business in Lofthouse was named best caravan holiday park in Yorkshire at the White Rose Awards in Harrogate last night.

Studfold Caravan and Camping Park has been a finalist in the category for the past four years but this is the first time it has come out as the winner.

The Walker family have farmed the land at Studfold for over 400 years through 16 generations. The campsite was established in the late 1950s when a fisherman asked if he could put his caravan in one of the fields.

Ian Walker, who attended the event on the Great Yorkshire Showground on behalf of Studfold, said: “It was a fantastic evening. I was convinced that we wouldn’t win and when we were announced as the winner it all became…

Harrogate Rotary Club, Nidderdale AONB and 18th Platoon join forces to plant trees at Studfold in The Yorkshire Dales

What a cracking day. 650 trees planted with a lovely bunch of great people – 18th platoon – a credit to Cpl Sutherland; and AONB and HRC volunteers. Thank you so much.
These trees will make such a difference to the environment at Studfold – Broad leaf trees will now be in abundance for generations to come – to admire and respect.


1,200 Trees for the ‘Nidderdale Experience’


1,200 Trees have been kindly donated to Studfold, in the Yorkshire Dales, from Harrogate Rotary Club as part of the ‘Trees for Nidderdale Project’. Terry Knowles from HRC organised the delivery and coding of all the trees; while Volunteers from Nidderdale AONB, organised by Paul Mosley, kindly gave their time to plant 550 trees over a period of 2 days. Luckily the weather was fantastic and everyone really enjoyed their experience. The remaining 650 trees are due to be planted by the army apprentice college in 2 weeks. Thanks must also be given to Richard and Sue Langley and the Blayshaw Team who gave their time to fence off new large areas for the trees and also for their assistance in planting.
The Broad leaf trees are a great asset to Studfold and Upper Nidderdale. A haven for many varieties of flora and fauna to develop in new habitats and also they will help to offset the carbon footprint of visitors to Studfold.
‘ It will be a pleasure to watch them grow – if not in my lifetime – but my children’s! We are all custodians of our own environments’. Anne Challis
