Hot Topics, What’s On and Where to find information about Cragg Vale
History Group meeting topic change
Due to unforeseen circumstances we are now privileged to have Anne Kilbey talking to us
about Dawson City. For those who do not know it is situated on the hill top above
Hardcastle Craggs and was the home of the navies who built the long gone railway bridge
at Blake Dene.
Mytholmroyd Flood Action: Follow up Meetings
Please take time to read the attached letter from the Council to everyone registered as
being a victim of flooding.
Follow up flood meetings have been set up where you will again have the opportunity to
talk, face to face, with engineers who knew in great detail about the flooding, and where
the council, Yorkshire Water, the Environment Agency and the Canal & River Trust will be
available to explain what work has been done since last Summer, and what’s also planned
in the medium and long term. The National Flood Forum will also be there with practical
help and advice. The dates and times are: Hebden Bridge Town Hall Thursday 7th March
and Mytholmroyd (St Michael’s Church Hall) Tuesday 12th March, both from 3pm to 7pm.
If you have been affected by flooding in Mytholmroyd or Cragg Vale and would like to be a
part of this local initiative, contact Jae Campbell of Mytholmroyd Flood Action, Upper
Valley Neighbourhood Co-ordinator. Telephone 01422 264622 or email.

are driving the cause forward on our behalf.
