Apperley Bridge through the ages

This walk is in Apperley Bridge, Bradford.

Starting at the location of a bridge across the river that was there a thousand years ago, this one hour loop starting and finishing at Apperley Bridge takes you past 14th Century pub, Bradford City's training grounds, a disused airfield and railway station and wildlife galore.

As you walk along riverside paths, look out for herons, kingfishers and, if you’re really lucky, maybe an otter too.

Fish and otters swim in the water, birds fly over it, but John Wroe couldn't walk on it!

You will need sturdy shoes and we are sorry but this walk is not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs.

Easy public transport links.

We hope you enjoyed your walk, we have many others available to download.
