Full marks to Richard Perham, our local Countryside Officer for Bradford Council, who has been busy helping to keep our walking routes open over recent months. Recent work has included:

  • the reopening of the path from Shipley Glen to Glovershaw Farm (where the bank of the stream had collapsed);
  • drainage work on the Welcome Way path above Little London;
  • and clearing an overgrown path by the allotments at Esholt.

Baildon Walkers are Welcome volunteers plan to clear vegetation soon from the track from Little London up to Bingley Road past Old Wood Farm. For a while the landowners discouraged walkers from using this important route out to the Moor, but it is now reopened. Becasue of lack of use for 6 months, vegetation has rather taken over.
