Baildon and the Town Council

Baildon Town Council's website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search facility to browse the site and find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find the information you require then please contact us.

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.

Baildon Welcomes the World - UCI World Cycling Championships

BAILDON WELCOMES THE WORLD

On Saturday 28th September 2019 over 100 of the top female cyclists in the world will take part in the UCI Women's Elite Road Race. The race will come through Baildon, along the Otley Road, at about 11.30 that day . As with the Tour de Yorkshire, activities are planned to welcome the race, and this year we are delighted that Greene King Brewery have agreed to sponsor a big screen in the car park at the Halfway House, so that you and your family can enjoy watching the race as it continues on to Harrogate. There will be a full range of food and drink options there, including the WI tea tent and choirs and refreshments at St James Church across the road - all welcome! More »

As part of this project, we are supporting a Baildon resident, artist and cyclist, Tim Curtis, who is involving children from every school in Baildon to produce a gigantic animated bicycle on the field outside Hollins Hall Hotel. This will be a Baildon "land-art" entry, and we hope will be televised to millions around the world!

How can you help?
Please come with family and/or friends and enjoy a fantastic 3 course meal at the Hollins Hall Hotel on Friday 13th September as part of our Fundraising Dinner!
Tickets are £25 each, available from the Halfway House or Baildon Town Council office (in the back of Baildon Library), until 5pm on Friday 6th September. It will be a great evening and you will be helping to raise part of the £3500 needed to fund the land-art.
