Welcome to Gallows Hill Nature Area!

Welcome to the Friends of Gallows Hill website! Here you can find information about the Gallows Hill Nature Area, see what events we have coming up and learn how to become a Friend.

Gallows Hill is a peaceful and increasingly diverse place, situated along a stretch of the River Wharfe in Otley. It is a habitat for a great many species of wildlife, most notably the Common Toads which can be found in the pond in large numbers.

Our membership has grown substantially over the past year and we have lots of plans for the future, including a new Community Orchard and Forest Garden. Explore the site to find out more!
