Help connect Bingley

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Bingley’s Slow Ways.

Starting off at the junction of Thornton Road & Kipping Lane, It is easy to find the start of West Lane by the Black Horse pub. West Lane continues up to the Back Lane junction, to the left of the house there is the start of the walk through the fields negotiating several stiles, stoops and gates down to Pitty Beck. This bit of road walking can be avoided by turning right down Allerton Road to an unsigned right of way on the left (just past the signed right of way on the right) which going through the stoop in the wall leads to the start of Bob Lane....

As noted in another review, you can improve the route by cutting onto the canal from the bridge by the station. I prefer to follow Morton Beck than the footpath running nearly parallel to this, but either one works....

A more scenic route is to follow the route from Bingley and joining the Canal towpath, on the gap on gasoline ally, off park road rather than going through park road....

The remainder of the route is on rubble fill tow path or foot way back to the streets of Bingley. A very pleasant route that I have given 4 stars only because of stiles and steps on the route....

The route leaves Bingley Station past a big supermarket on over a footbridge to access the canal towpath. Unfortunately, the bridge to leave the canal has a flight of steps before crossing the canal itself....

The first third of this route is along busy main roads, but the remainder is all along the canal, and makes up for this. The step-free footbridge from the Bingley Three Rise a bit further on, leads onto the main road into Bingley....

Jane Timperley added Keibin three, a new walk from Keighley to Bingley

Walk this route

Route is not suitable for wheels as there are steps and uneven paths and cobbles, kiss gates and steep inclines. I would recommend a route along the canal as an alternative. Great views on this route and enjoyable but hard to navigate in Keighley itself and when almost at Bingley due to the number of paths around....

Jane Timperley

Walk this route

Upland route with spectacular views mostly on public footpaths. If you start at Denholme probably about 80% of route is downhill, starting Bingley 80% uphill, sometimes steep. Refreshments available approx halfway at Wilsden....
