Bradford Fairtrade Way
This scenic circular walk plans to link the 9 Fairtrade villages and towns in the Bradford district
Circular Walk – 4 Miles – 2 & 1/2 hours
This walk involves quite a bit of climbing, across fields, woodland and moorland. You will pass by the Coppice Pond, Lady Blantyre’s rock and the Ferrands Memorial before visiting Druids Altar with its spectacular views of the Aire Valley.
Linear Walk – 4 Miles – 2 & 1/2 hours
The walk links the towns of Keighley and Bingley. It starts with a steep uphill climb before levelling out high above the Aire Valley with great views from Druids Altar. Then its downhill through St Ives Estate to reach Bingley town centre.
Circular Walk – 4.15 Miles – 2 hours
A great walk combining history and nature and going through the St Ives Estate and Saint David’s Ruin, a Victorian folly between Harden and Cottingley. There is quite a bit of a climb half way through but the reward will be there once you reached the folly!
Circular Walk – 4.75 Miles – 2 hours
St Ives estate near Bingley is a popular destination for all types of leisure activities. It’s a big wooded estate and is owned by the Bradford & City Metropolitan District. This walk will take you all around its boundaries.
Circular Walk – 5 Miles – 3 hours
Starting with a steep climb through the back streets of Keighley, the walk reaches its highest point in St Ives Estate. Then it is quite level before starting your return over Harden Moor and a steep descent back to Keighley.
Linear Walk – 5 Miles – 3 hours
This scenic linear walk between Bingley and Baildon incorporating canal and moorland has about 200m of steady climb to reach the top of Baildon Moor. But you won’t be disappointed by the views there! So really worth the effort.
Circular Walk – 6 Miles – 2 & 1/2 hours
A surprisingly rural walk through what most would consider an urban area. After an easy start, it soon changes as you start climbing to the top of Norr Hill (282m/925ft). Then it’s level or downhill on your return, finishing along the River Aire.
Circular Walk – 8.3 Miles – 4 hours
A great walk for those wishing to explore the wonders of Bingley and its hidden secrets taking in the River Aire, moorland, woodland and the canal. The views are also breathtaking as you will be going up and down the hills all around the town.
