Otley Rd, Baildon,
Please note: The post code is for the Denso Marston factory which is the nearest available to the reserve.
Although appropriate gates are provided to allow wheelchair access into the reserve, the rough river path and gradual river bank erosion has presented problems.
Our future plan is to make part of the reserve accessible by upgrading paths, subject to available funds and planning approval.
Car parking is available in the lay-by near St. James Church.
The regular bus service along Otley Road from Shipley is 737. Baildon and Shipley train stations are within reasonable walking distance.
Access from the Leeds/Liverpool canal and Buck Woods by crossing the river via the Buck Lane bridge.
