Overview

'The Baildon Plan, first put together by Baildon Town Council, following much public consultation in 2011, included an aspiration for Baildon to achieve the designation of becoming a Walkers are Welcome town. A steering group of local residents with a keen interest in walking and the countryside was established and set out to demonstrate that we met the criteria for achieving national designation. In 2013 Baildon was awarded Walkers are Welcome status, thanks to its fantastic countryside location and abundance of routes for walkers of all abilities.'
