For too long, a small community in Yorkshire has suffered at the hands of a huge landowner. The 16,000-acre Walshaw Estate, a giant grouse moor owned by a wealthy retail tycoon, looms over Hebden Bridge and the Calder Valley. The landowner burns the moor to breed more grouse for sport, and the towns below flood. Enough’s enough: the moor should be owned by the community and managed in its interests.

That’s why we’re organising Take Back The Land: a camp and land occupation near Hebden Bridge from Friday 10th May to Mon 13th May.

Everyone is welcome: we plan to protest, hold workshops, sing songs, and take action together to call for land reform in England. Please bring a tent, sturdy footwear, warm clothes, and a strong desire to change the world.

Come join us on the wuthering heights of Walshaw Moor to take back the land!

**Site will be announced nearer to the time – please check back here for details, but book trains/ coaches to Hebden Bridge**
