Bingley & Airedale

A walk from the Towpath at Keighley
Starting and finishing along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal the walk soon leaves the valley bottom as it starts a steep climb up the northern side of the Aire Valley via Riddlesden Golf Course (watch out for flying golf balls!). Near to Jay Tail Farm at the highest point of the route, pause a while to enjoy the long distance views up and down the Aire Valley before starting your return journey, level at first then a gentle decent for an easy finish.
