Rodley Nature Reserve has been on my "to do" list for ages and so glad I chose a scorching Sunday to make my 1st visit. Easy access from Leeds and Shipley on the 760 bus. Quaint approach over the canal swing bridge, in use often on Sundays to let narrowboat pleasure trips go by. The reserve is free and run by volunteers who give you a warm welcome. The visitor centre sells unpriced food and drink on a donation basis. Don't worry if you're not a keen birdwatcher as the tranquillity alone merits a visit, as do the views to be had from the many benches dotted around the site. Kids are catered for with pond dipping activities.
