Shipley Glen, Baildon.

Book Tickets Online


Shipley Glen is a lovely sloped area of woodland, rocks and heather and former Victorian pleasure ground that connects Saltaire with Baildon Moor and makes for a great afternoon of exploration for the whole family.

Shipley Glen is rich in archaeology and recent surveys have found evidence of historic charcoal making platforms on the wooded slopes.  The area was an extremely popular destination in the late 1800s as thousands of local people visited the open countryside and, at the time, its theme park.
