About Weekend tree rangerHelp protect newly planted trees high in the fells of the Upper Wharfedale.
Join the rangers and help to look after newly planted trees in gills and on steep fellsides in remote Langstrothdale. You'll be walking a some distance up steep slopes to firm and tidy up posts and tree tubes. You'll also get the chance to plant a few replacement trees to leave your permanent mark on the landscape.
About the accommodation
The accommodation is located on the edge of the village of Buckden and at the foot of 702m high Buckden Pike. It is a 200-year-old converted barn with a large living room with open views up to Wharfedale into Langstrothdale. It is an ‘upside down’ building with the living room, kitchen and one bunk room on the first floor and two bunk rooms and bathroom on the ground floor. Each bunk room has two bunk beds. One is en suite, the other two share a bathroom/toilet. Town Head Bunkhouse does not have a garden next to the building but there is a National Trust picnic area with a built-in barbecue just 100 yards away.
