The recent bad weather has caused a section of path at Baildon to collapse – alongside Glovershaw Beck. Bradford Council are in the process of obtaining a temporary closure of the route while they assess what they can do to restore the path.
Below is a plan showing the section of path (part of Baildon 18) which is not safe to walk – there is an alternative route available via the edge of Baildon Moor/Shipley Glen and Footpath 2 Baildon to reconnect with the link route.
The collapsed section of path affects part of the route as described in paragraph 2 of page 3 of the self guided walk – link below and shown on Map 2.
Dales Way Bradford Link.
Update: August 10, This section is now open again.
The trustees of Otley Courthouse has made a donation of £100 to the Friends of Dalesbus – a group that campaigns for affordable public transport.
The donation was made following a public talk given at the venue on “50 years of the Dales Way” by Colin Speakman, chair of the Dales Way Association and Vice-chair of the Friends of DalesBus.
Hazel Costello from the Courthouse’s trustees said the donation was a token of thanks to Colin for giving a “very interesting and informative talk”. She said “The idea of the DalesBus is to encourage as many people as possible to get to the Dales on public transport, and using public transport is more important than ever with the need to use less cars and more buses and so contribute to lessening the effects of climate change.”
DWA committee members Kath Doyle and Gordon Tasker were also on hand to show the new mobile Anniversary Exhibition.
The donation was reported in the Wharfedale & Aireborough Observer at the end of last month.
