In autumn with wall

Woodhouse Ridge is a much prized wooded public park in north west Leeds, long and thin in parts, stretching on the eastern flank of Headingley Hill between Headingley, Buslingthorpe and Woodhouse. WRAG is a voluntary conservation group, established in 1995 to turn around what at that time was an un-managed, under-resourced and apparently unloved and downright dodgy place; and remarkably enough we're still at it - and now it's a really lovely place (mostly).

At our monthly Action Days, we carry out practical woodland management tasks, vegetation management and path maintenance and inevitably.... litter picking. We hold open-access general meetings monthly at the Chemic Tavern to plan and review our Action Days, discuss local news and initiatives in the Valley and plan small improvement projects.

In addition, the history of Woodhouse Ridge and its changing face over the past 150 years exerts a fascination for us and we like to delve into historic archives to explore and uncover text and images.
