People of Austwick were joined by others from Keasden and Newby and by a big group from St John's Church, Bowling in Bradford. Revd Ian Greenhalgh led the 4 mile walk and another group followed a 2 mile route.
Two days later a campaign was set up by nature conservation organisations to support the EU Nature laws (Habitats directive) which protect such areas. There are moves by developers to weaken such laws.
Please support the petition which to protect the EU Habitats Law which enables habitats such as the Ingleborough complex including the woods near Austwick to be protected. See www.rspb.org.uk/joinandhelp/campaignwithus/defendnature/
