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.

So let’s make this a success and hopefully it will be a recurring annual event for many years to come!
