Details

Meeting outside Bracken Hall, we walk down past the ‘Old Glen House’ public house to Coach Road. Here we cross through housing and over a footbridge spanning the River Aire to Hirst Mill hamlet and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. We’ll cross the canal and walk through Hirst Wood to Dowley Gap and back onto the canal towpath, through Bingley, passing the 5 Rise Locks, East and West Riddlesden Halls to Utley, where we turn left through Keighley Golf Course to Utley Village. We join old footpaths through the village, through Steep Fields Wood Plantation and into Cliffe Castle Park. You may want to use this opportunity to visit your local museum now (check opening times/if it is open to the public). We then walk into Keighley town and return to Saltaire by either bus or train and then complete our walk through Roberts Park, Shipley Glen Tramway bridlepath, Prod lane and Glen Road.
