Baildon Benches

Welcome to Baildon Benches

For some while, we have been seeking an agreement with Bradford Council to take over the maintenance of the public seats or benches which are located on the highway. There are over 20 of them in locations around Baildon.

We are delighted to report that - finally - we have now received a formal licence from Bradford to do just that.

Baildon Town Council wants to see every seat fully maintained and looking smart, and to this end we will be launching a programme to renovate them all, funded by BTC and assisted by sponsorship.

Baildon Benches is an Adopt-a-seat scheme, where individuals or organisations can pay to sponsor a seat which will allow them to have a memorial or sponsorship plaque placed on the seat, as you will have seen in many other places.

As well as regular programmed maintenance (by a local firm), we can now offer opportunities for:

  • The Memorial dedication of a bench (lasting 10 years, for a one off payment of £300)
  • The Sponsorship of a bench (lasting 3 years, for a single payment of £120)

Within the fee we will include a plaque on your chosen bench with your very own dedication (between 70/100 characters)

For more information about the Baildon Benches initiative, visit the project overview document created by our Environment Committee:

Alternatively if you would like to sponsor one of our Benches, complete our application form:


We have just been informed by Bradford Council that some benches in this scheme will be replaced in a few months. We are unsure which benches will be replaced but we will provide updates as soon as we know more!
