The Colne Valley Park covers over 40 square miles and is the first real taste of countryside to the west of London. The Valley hosts a mosaic of farmland, woodland and water with 200 miles of river and canal and over 60 lakes. It is   also a living, working environment, providing employment and homes for many people as well as being a haven for wildlife. It is 50 years old this year! see Projects to find out how we are celebrating. Click here for our latest CVP Newsletter
