Yorkshire Day – our favourite walks and green spaces

On the 1st August each year we celebrate our fantastic county (although we like to appreciate it every day of the year!), and we thought we’d share our favourite walks and green spaces in the region this Yorkshire Day…

Being outside and in breathing in the fresh air is great for the mind and body. Whether you go for a 10 minute stroll or a full day hike, even just a little bit of time spent outside can make a huge difference. Take a look at our list below and see how many you can do this summer…

Roberts Park, Saltaire

Across the bridge from Salts Mill you will find Roberts Park, a beautiful green space which is the perfect spot for a walk or a picnic. The Park has well-paved paths throughout, making it suitable for wheelchairs, pushchairs and bikes, and is also home to a skate park and play area.

Shipley Glen, Baildon

Next to Titus Salt School, you’ll find a pathway past Shipley Glen Tramway which goes up to Shipley Glen and Baildon Moor. Although a steep 15 minute walk up the tramway, the views are well worth it – it’s the perfect place for dog-walking, picnics, or a quick half an hour/one hour walk.

Northcliffe Park, Shipley

Northcliffe Park is just a few minutes walk from The Cellar Trust on Bradford Road. The woods, park, and play area make up a fantastic green space that’s great for all ages.

Cliffe Castle Park, Keighley

We offer our Woodwork & Horticulture sessions at Cliffe Castle in Keighley, but did you know the park is a fantastic place for a walk? The grounds offer plenty of space to play games or ride bikes, and you could easily spend a couple of hours exploring/walking.

Wibsey Park, Wibsey

Wibsey Park offers some fantastic tree-lined areas, a lovely lake-side walk, and numerous sports pitches. We also offer our Woodwork & Horticulture sessions here too in partnership with Wibsey Community Garden.

Bradford City of Film walk

The Casual Ramblers team has put together a fantastic walking route around Bradford which takes you around key locations of Bradford-based films, books and famous people. Download this guide to find out more.

Women’s History in Bradford walk

A short walk of under 2 miles around the points of interest relating to the role of women in Bradford’s history. Jo Stanley put together this fantastic walk, which you can find more information about here.

 

 

Mental Health Awareness Week 2019

Mental Health Awareness Week 2019

Tomorrow marks the start of Mental Health Awareness Week, and this year we’ve teamed up with the fantastic folks over at Mind in Bradford to lead a Wellbeing Walk!

1 in 4 people struggle with mental health problems and to highlight this we’ll be completing a 4-day walk, visiting different organisations along the way.

If you’d like to join in for a half day, full day, or the whole thing, you can find further information such as meeting points below…
