Superlative Walks

Urban trails, each with something very special


The Saltaire walk starts and finishes at Saltaire Railway Station, in the “model village” of Saltaire.  The walk goes along the towpath of the Leeds -Liverpool Canal before passing through woodlands then small settlements before climbing on to Baildon Moor before descending into Shipley Glen and returning to the starting location. Some stretches may be muddy after wet weather.
