Baildon is located in the Aire Valley, between the city of Bradford and Rombalds Moor. Whether you still think of Baildon as a village or have embraced its new status as a town, we can all agree that Baildon is a great place to live. As a Town Council, we're proud to represent a place with such character, history and natural beauty as Baildon.
Stretching from the river at Roberts Park, along Otley Road through Charlestown and Tong Park, and up to Baildon Moor, Baildon is much more than just what is traditionally considered the village centre. Around 16,000 residents, spread across an area of approximately 16 square miles, live, work, shop and eat at locations from Charlestown to Baildon Bridge to the Coach Road.
Community spirit is strong in Baildon, with residents active in groups as diverse as the Women's Institute, Baildon Ukelele Club, churches, Baildon in Bloom, Friends of Baildon Moor and youth activities – to mention just a few.
Baildon hosts many exciting events in which the whole community come together, like August bank holiday's Harley Davidson biker rally, the Scarecrow Festival, the annual carnival and Baildon at Christmas. There's lots to see and do: the Victorian tramway at Shipley Glen runs at weekends and Roberts Park, although part of the Saltaire World Heritage Site, is within the Baildon boundary.
What does Baildon mean to you? Perhaps it's the moor with its swooping, warbling lapwings. Maybe it's the potted meat stick or the stocks and medieval cross. Email and tell us what you think about the town where you live.

Once loaded onto the phone the app looks like a weather app, but behind the tile it offers advice and support including help lines.
