Walkers are Welcome in Baildon

In October 2012 Baildon was granted membership of the Walkers are Welcome scheme. This status acknowledges the commitment of people and organisations in Baildon to making visitors feel welcome and to provide facilities and an experience to remember. Visit the Walkers are Welcome website to find out more about the scheme.

You can read some more about it on the Telegraph and Argus site here.

The Friends of Baildon Moor supported the application along with Baildon Parish Council.

To get you started there are 10 Heritage Trail booklets that not only are an excellent guide through various parts of Baildon but also provide lots of information for you to read, either when you are on the walk, or later when relaxing.

Heritage Trail Booklets

They are all illustrated, with most illustrations being pen and ink drawings done by a local artist. The back cover also has a good map showing the route described in the text. Hard copies of these booklets can be bought from the Baildon Library or you can download a PDF of each from the documents section of the Baildon Parish Council website.
