First September walk - Saltaire CHILDREN WELCOME

The walk is close to the historic town of Saltaire.  It is a combination of two walks, the first is to the river where there is a sculpture trail designed by young children. While walking through the industrial back-yards you can pick blackberries. The canal section has the old warehouses before getting back to Salts Mill. The second walk is through the woodland close to Saltaire. There is the option of going on the Shipley Glen cable railway through the woods (£1 per adult) or walking up the path. The walk ends walking by the canal by the lock.

The walk has lots of interest, the first part suitable for pushchairs, but with a major road to cross. The second part is harder, rough underfoot and steepish in parts. Walk is suitable for dogs, but on a lead sometimes. So a varied and interesting walk just over 4 miles. At the end - the Boat Inn will welcome children but not dogs, also there are lots of cafe's near-by. A large children's play area is close by.

Directions - plenty of buses to Saltaire and we will start close to the railway station.

Parking - ample free car parking at Salts Mill, Salts Mill Road,  BD18 3LA. There are large car parks to the right as you drive towards the mill. Once parked up, walk towards the mill, past the newish entrance, round the corner to the old entrance then take the steps on the left up to the bridge and cross the road.

This is where you want to end up, outside that building.

    Sorry got soaked in heavy rain and caught cold. At my ripe age of 97 it would be safe for me to keep warm and stay at home unless Christine has arranged some wood burning stoves on route.

      Sorry Akram, I would have been happy to wheel you round in a bath chair covered in crocheted blankets but some of the paths are a bit narrow. Get well soon.

      Thanks Christine you are so kind. Just next time ask the council and arrange a buldozer to clear the path to wheel me around. Thanks again.

    Parking updated.
    Anyone want to carshare from Huddersfield? I'll probably go M606 then try and find my way through Clayton and Heaton in an attempt to avoid Bradford horror traffic. A navigator would come in handy.

    September 5, 2013

    • Sheila L.

      thanks Chris - I know the way to Shipley and you did the bit after to the car park you recommend
