Farmyard Fun At 'Upper Nidderdale In The City' Event

Families in Leeds can get a taste of country life as the first ever Upper Nidderdale celebration comes to town.

The Upper Nidderdale in the City event will be held at Kirkstall Abbey on Saturday, April 22 and will include a petting zoo with farm animals, willow weaving, nature trails, foraging walks - and even the chance to learn how to milk a cow.

The free family-friendly event aims to highlight everything Upper Nidderdale has to offer and encourage visitors to the area, which is part of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Beauty.

Iain Mann, Scheme Manager at the Upper Nidderdale Landscape Partnership, said:

"Our Upper Nidderdale in the City event is all about showing people who live in Leeds the wide range of things that happen in a rural area like Nidderdale - it's only 25 miles from Kirkstall Abbey to Pateley Bridge but they are very different places!

"We hope that by bringing a bit of what is special about Upper Nidderdale to Leeds, people will get more of an understanding of the area and want to come and have a look for themselves."

Other activities at the family fun day include stone masonry demonstrations, bee keeping advice, brass band performances and bird watching. Ice cream and refreshments will also be available.

For more information about the Upper Nidderdale Landscape Partnership, which is funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund, visit www.uppernidderdale.org.uk

The free event runs from 11am to 3pm on Saturday, April 22.
