We don’t usually share events which are not walk related but on this occasion we believe there is enough ground for us to make an exception:
it’s a community event involving three local organisations
it’s a family fun day
it’s happening locally using local facilities (Bingley Pool and Myrtle Park)
So let’s make this a success and hopefully it will be a recurring annual event for many years to come!
Here are some exciting guided walks organised in Bingley Prince of Wales Park this year by the Friends of Prince of Wales Park, one of the local organisations linked to us.
This Grade II Historic England listed woodland park has some good formal paths and drives but it is still recommended to wear good footwear as you may walk on tracks through woodland or across the open heath at the top of the park.
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!
