I don't know if the news is well known but have it on reliable source that they are now going be the home of a small estate of eco houses! Which means that the green belt doesn't seem to matter and there will be even more traffic going over the moors ... [ more ]
Please consider attending the meeting of the planning committee of Baildon Town Council on Thursday 14 July at 7:30 at the Link to make your opinions known, so that the committee can then pass them on to Bradford Council. The more public input, the ... [ more ]
Bradford Council's Core Strategy states that 350 houses must be built in Baildon before 2030, and there must be at least five houses on a site for them to count towards that total (these two wouldn't). So far about 175 have been built, so there are ... [ more ]
Yes, he has been in the T&A several times. And the planning meeting Thursday at the Link is now at 6:30 instead of 7:30 to allow plenty of time for the public to speak and for discussion of the facts.
I don't know - if you can help get the word out, that would be great!
Thanks for that Julia, and so do I!
We had this posted through our door the other day. I feel strongly that people should support this and object as the plan takes away from the spacious surroundings we are lucky to have on Brackendale estate and may set a precedent for further ... [ more ]

Happy for you both!
Glad to see this lovely building at Baildon Cemetery being repaired at last ,,
The Bradford Building Preservation Trust, a registered charity, has taken it on. Its eventual use will be in keeping with its surroundings, respecting the cemetery. It's nice to see a planning application that is about preserving, not destroying, our ... [ more ]
Hello to anyone interested in a flutter. I am a very keen horse racing fan who knows a bit about the sport. There is a Saturday bet called scoop six and I am convinced it is winnable fairly often with the right permutation of selections. The win fund ... [ more ]
What sort of stakes are you thinking? How much would I need to put in per week?
We have had a forced move to Baildon due to the floods. We are gradualy sorting ourselves out and would be interested in what the area has to offer in the way of activities, social and community etc. First impressions are that it's a lovely village ... [ more ]
There are lots of activities at the Link; there should be a schedule online, or if not, you could drop in and pick one up. There are also a lot of activities and various groups throughout the week at Baildon Methodist church. And if you enjoy walking, ... [ more ]
That is very reasonable, thanks Vivien. And welcome, MOE!

Is there anything the community can do for those poor souls on Coach Road?
I've been told that the church hall at Saint James has been offered as a rest centre tonight, if needed. A lovely gesture!

Hi I have my 12 month old granddaughter visiting over Christmas for 10 days. If the weather is bad does anyone know any fun places to take a little girl of that age. They don't live up here so all will be new. I've looked on the internet but many of ... [ more ]
The Shipley Glen Tramway is running its weekend Santa Specials beginning on 5 December and going right through the holiday season. Fun for all ages!
Some lowlife has dumped a van load (too much for a car) of domestic rubbish including kids toys etc at side of road on the glen. Am trying to work out how to get in touch with council. What kind of person does that? Ok I think we know the answer
Mark Scrimshaw is the Environmental Warden for Baildon. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org, or through the link on the Baildon Town Council website.
Does anyone have any tales of historic hauntings in Baildon that they could share?
Thanks for the information, Barbara, I'll follow up on that!
Thanks Maria. If you're the Maria G that I think you are, I've heard some pretty amazing feedback about your own tour! :-)
Thanks Maria, I'm planning on it!
Does anyone happen to know what happened to the headstone built into the wall at the top of High Bank Lane?
Thanks to both of you for posting this. My heart sank, as well, when I saw it was missing, and I regretted not having taken a photo. I even considered contacting the newspaper to see if they would run a story; maybe it's not too late. (?) It went ... [ more ]
I'm really not sure on the year, but it was just before they built those earthen "humps", for lack of a better word, alongside the road. I'm assuming it was to prevent further campsites from forming spontaneously. Hope that helps. It seems as though ... [ more ]
Yes, great idea!
Brilliant action on this. (Glad you survived, Ian.) I, too, would like to know the story of Tramp. Any ideas of how to find out about it?
Does anybody know what's happening with the Oddfellows Hall, on Cross Banks and Otley Road? This was a lovely old (1840) historic building with important links to Shipley's past, later a public house and now slowly rotting. I did consider putting in ... [ more ]
What have your local councillors said, if I may ask?

I thoroughly enjoyed Friday's walk, led by Mike Lawson and focusing on the geography and history of Baildon Moor. It was interesting and informative, and the views were beautiful. With a friendly group and perfect conditions (other than the flying ... [ more ]
I have just seen your message regarding Volunteers for the weekend, I would love to help in the shop. Look forward to hearing from you Pauline
Hi Pauline, I'm going up there tomorrow, and will make sure that the coordinator is aware of your interest (just in case she doesn't check the site between now and then). Or if you want to send me a phone number in the personal messages, I'll pass ... [ more ]
Hello I live in Baildon but only moved here in June and me and my partner still don't know many people in the area and I would really like to meet people to possibly learn a language with. I would like to learn Spanish and continue as I lived there ... [ more ]
I could certainly use the practise; I used to speak Spanish fairly well but but am now mortified at how awful I am at it. Is there a group at the Link? We could form an intermediate group; if the Link isn't available, maybe meeting at the library, ... [ more ]
Sounds good to me! But until Lola is free to offer an intermediate course, perhaps others would like to join in a less formal group? Shall we see if there's any more interest on here?
I'm looking for a hairdressers with a downstairs loo. I have mobility problems, but can manage one step with the help of crutches. Ideally, though, I'd like to be able to drive my mobility scooter (small size) straight into the salon. Does anyone know ... [ more ]

Since coming to live in our beautiful community, more years ago than I care to remember, I've always wondered about the pronunciation of the place name. I've heard it called Wrose to rhyme with the flower, rose, and also Wrose to rhyme with what some ... [ more ]
That was a very interesting read. Thanks for pointing it out.
