Official Grand Reopening of Cliffe Castle Heritage Park

posted in: Other Events | 0

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.

The day will be the first time the doors of the new glasshouse range will be open for public viewings. Previously famous for its cacti display, visitors are up for a treat because the Cactus Society has finished its new display incorporating donated specimens which are around 50 years old!
