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.  Visit our what we do page to learn about some of the projects we have been working on.

Industrial Heritage

50 Years of the Unofficial Countryside explores the Colne Valley Regional Park's industrial heritage which has shaped the landscape we are familiar with today. Over the years, the Park's landscape has been shaped from quarrying, the Grand Union and Slough Arm canals, farming and agriculture and more creating; parks, lakes, pathways and waterways for us and wildlife to enjoy. If you have a chance listen to the podcast series.
