The Friends are individuals who are committed to protecting, conserving and enhancing Green Dale for the benefit of wildlife and people. Membership is open to any individual who supports this objective.

Groups such as other Friends groups, Societies, schools and Tenants and Residents Associations who support the Objective are recognized on the Supporters pages.

Organisations such as businesses who can actively support our work through the provision of assistance of any kind will also be recognised in this way. 

The Friends are organised by a committee elected by members every 12 months and their work is governed by a formal constitution.


The verdant vale that slopes below,
The woods where bleak winds whisper shrill,
The breaks that distant landscape show,
Delight the mind on Champion Hill.
