On this walk, Walkers are Welcome are supplying a guide telling the history of Bingley St Ives Estate. Visitors will have a glimpse of an area that English Heritage entered into the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in 2009.

The walk takes us past some of the many listed buildings within the Bingley St Ives Estate.

We pass a Traditional Pennine Laithe House, cross an area which has had a Geophysical survey carried out showing interesting features.

See some remains of the extensive Ponds and Water Gardens which were developed in the early 1800s by Walker Ferrand.

Pass an area which is said to have influenced Disraeli in his writing of his book Sybil.

See the site where the 'Minster Oak' was felled and donated to York Minster, after the roof was struck by lightning, causing the fire which destroyed part of the roof. This Oak Tree was due to be felled so it was donated to the Minster where it was incorporated into the roof reconstruction.

We will walk along a short stretch of the lane which was known as the King's Highway, this was the old track leading from Bingley to Haworth.

Coppice Pond is thought to date back to the 1300s, we will pass the site of the boathouse.
Coppice Pond was used as part of Bingley's water supply for about 100 years until 1974 when Yorkshire Water took over the supply.
This water feature is now the home of many different species of water fowl.

One of the buildings in the Mansion complex was a Nonconformist Chapel. This has now been converted into residential accommodation however the Bell Housing on the roof is still a feature.
