You might be familiar with a path which runs along the River Aire in Bingley from Millgate (near White Horse Inn) to Myrtle Park. It's a beautiful and scenic path which is called the Riverside Walk. The path was first created by local members of the public and then maintained by Soroptimist International of Bingley. Over the years it has kept its charm and is still used daily by many people. However, some parts of the path have become a little difficult to trample on especially around the carved stone called the “Throstle Nest of Old England Bingley“. So we got in touch with Bradford Council who then referred us to the Aire River Trust. They've been running a programme of volunteering events and thanks to their army of volunteers, they brought the hardcore needed to level up the path and remove the “hump" around the stone. The path is now wheelchair and pushchair friendly from one end to the other!
This week we’ve been doing a job that we hope will make a real difference to people. At the request of @BingleyWaW we have been repairing the riverside path next to the Queen St carpark. Resurfacing the path to remove the "hump" that blocked the way to wheelchairs & pushchairs. pic.twitter.com/m2nHuYd9f1— Aire Rivers Trust (@aireriverstrust) August 20, 2021
These are the walking routes which have been improved thanks to the work on this path:
