Saturday 19th May 2018 will see the second Bingley Canal Festival. It follows on the success of the first one organised in October 2016. At the time, it was only intended to be a one-off event of eight days across the North of England to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the official opening of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. This time, the festival is organised solely by the Bingley local community and we are hopeful to make it an annual feature!

Planned to introduce non-birders to birds in St.Ives Estate, the walks can take up to 3 hours depending upon weather and the birds. They take place in all weathers so please come ready for the conditions with suitable footwear. Children are welcome but dogs will hinder our chances of getting close to the birds. Open to all and free of charge.

Cliffe Castle Heritage Park in Keighley is one of the outdoor gems of the Aire Valley. Unfortunately, this Victorian countryside park had fallen into disarray over the years and a much needed refurbishment work was needed. Following a successful bid, Bradford Council managed to secure £3.5 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Parks for the People programme, and provided the remaining 1 million of the funding itself. The full restoration including the glasshouse, fountains, aviary and paths is now nearing completion and a Grand Re-opening ceremony is planned on 10th December 2017.
Why not join us on one of our regular Sunday walks? They always take place on the second Sunday of every month starting outside Bingley Arts Centre at 10am. The walks will be approximately five miles / 2 hours. What do you need? Bring liquid refreshment and wear walking boots. After the walk we usually have lunch or a drink in one of the town’s welcoming cafés. Most of them now display our “Walkers are Welcome” stickers in their windows.
