“Good time for kids”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

I was always taken here as a child lots of rocks to climb and plenty of places to hide and always an ice crream van with real yorkshire icecream yummy. As an adult nice walks and a pub near by. A real day out for all.

“A very pleasant walk”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

We approached the moor in the Shipley Glen Tramway which is an experience in itself. Once you get to the top the walks are wonderful and the views breathtaking views. Somehwhat overshadowed by the neighbouring Ilkley Moor this is a spot not to be missed. Plenty of flora to be observed. Excellent!

“Freedom”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

How wonderful to find such a wonderful open space which is typical of the beautiful moorland countryside that surrounds the city of Bradford. It is typical of the area of West Yorkshire with beautiful countryside above, heavy industrial milltowns.

“the open air as fresh as it comes”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

A lovely example of a Yorkshire moor, only a little overshadowed by its more famous neighbour, Ilkley Moor, Bah tat etc.. Mind the golfers and the horseriders whilst admiring the ancient mine workings, They are safe these days but a great reminder that once this place was not so lovely. Good for spotting Red Kites and other local birds and wildlife. Take your dog and money for the excellent ice cream vans. Great place to fill your boots and your lungs With good distant views and some excellent sunsets although these are dependent on the weather or time of day

“Ilkley Moor”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

I always have a tear in my eye when I take my dear wife ( who is not quite as able as she once was ) to the rather unkempt car park overlooking Baildon. After a sandwich, a short drive down to the pub for a gentle drink, and ( me ) to remember the fifty and more years ago when we did the same; or almost the same trip.
