Urgent update: APOLOGIES TO ALL CONCERNED, BUT IN LIGHT OF THE LATEST GOVERNMENT ADVICE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS, WE ARE HAVING TO TEMPORARILY CLOSE THE COUNTRYSIDE CENTRE. PLEASE WATCH THIS SPACE FOR UPDATES.

Bracken Hall Countryside Centre is now open to the public every Saturday and Sunday from noon until 4pm. There's a great Winter programme of events and walks organised by the BTC and the Friends of Bracken Hall Countryside Centre and a range of activities for schools, groups and individuals is provided.

We are in the middle of exciting developments at BHCC. In the Autumn we received a number of loan items from the Bradford Museums Service - items that were on display here when BHCC was run by that service. We have reworked our Exhibition Room, re-hung display panels, reconfigured the exhibition space, and are working on getting the last few loan items back on display. Please come along and see where we've got to, and share your thoughts and ideas with us.

For more information on the history and activities going on at BHCC, please see Facebook (we have two sites - Bracken Hall Countryside Centre, and Friends of Bracken Hall Countryside Centre), or the friends of Bracken Hall Website here:
