Free Ilkley Tree Trails available in town

Printed copies of three Ilkley Tree Trails are now available again throughout the town thanks to the support of Ilkley BID.

As a lockdown activity Neil and Sue Stevens created “Introduction to Trees” last year which visits trees around East Holmes Field and the Lido. The trail proved very popular so they have gone on to create “Town Centre Trees” and finally “Darwin Gardens and the Moor”.

Sue Stevens says “We have enjoyed creating these trails and have learnt a lot in doing so. We hope the trails will encourage people to take an interest in trees and appreciate how important they are for the character of our town.”

This spring we ran out of printed stocks so we were delighted when Ilkley BID offered to support a new and updated reprint.”

The booklets, which are free of charge, can be picked up from the Ilkley Visitor Information Centre, The Grove Bookshop and the Clarke Foley Centre.

They are also available online at
