Linear Guided Walk!
Start time 1030
Distance 14.4km / 9.0mi
Money for public transport required for return journey
Meet at Bracken Hall and walk down Shipley Glen and past the Shipley Glen Tramway to Roberts
Park and Saltaire. We join the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and walk alongside it, passing Shipley,
Thackley, Idle, Apperley Bridge and Calverley to Rodley village bottom. We’ll pass through
industrial villages and towns, alongside old woodlands and alongside a canal full of animal and
plant life. We’ll return by bus to Shipley or Saltaire and walk back, passing the canal, through
Roberts Park and up to Shipley Glen.
Circular Guided Walk!
Distance 5km / 3mi
Starting at Bracken Hall and either going up and down Shipley Glen via Salts Bridge and Cragg
Hebble Reservoir or going up and down Baildon Moor via Shipley Glen and returning on public
footpaths through Bracken Hall Farm. I imagine members of the walk may choose to have a
‘warming snifter’ at the local hostelry!
