Improvements at Fairbank Wood

Baildon Town Council is delighted to be able to fund some of the improvements being undertaken by the Baildon Green Community Association at Fairbank Wood (also known as Knoll Wood), Green Lane, Baildon. A meeting of the Council's Environment Committee on 26th October granted a sum of just over £1900 to match funding from Bradford Council.

The immediate actions proposed by the Baildon Green Community Association are to:

  • Define and enhance the site entrances with clean-ups, cutbacks and signage.
  • Install seating at strategic rest and viewpoints.
  • Improve lines of visibility and reduce environmental eyesores such as litter, fly tipping and graffiti.
  • Install two litterbins at the top and bottom of the main path.

In addition they plan to install interpretation panels with maps, to connect with the new ones already funded for the Coach Road riverside walk. These will later link to the wider network of footpaths and bridleways around Baildon Green, linking Saltaire, Shipley and Baildon. They will also highlight features of the natural and cultural history of the Baildon Green area.
