Bingley is located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, just down the Aire Valley from the famous Bronte area, an area rich in history with prehistoric Rombalds Way coming from the east, passing across what they now refer to as Ilkley Moor and on to the west coast. There is also much in the way of more recent history with the mills, railway and the Leeds Liverpool canal, all from the industrial revolution.
Bingley and District Local History Society was founded in 1988 by a group of local enthusiasts whose interest in Bingley’s history had been stimulated on a local history course run by Dr Gary Firth. The society’s main aims are to disseminate Bingley’s history and provide information in the form of talks, books and DVDs which will widen the local population’s knowledge of the history of the Bingley area which was once known as ‘The Throstle’s Nest of England’.
Talks and presentations are given regularly at Church House in Bingley. The Society has grown and developed over the years and now includes in it’s program an increasing number of events including some summer walks.
This calendar is a celebration of Bingley’s Canal, it features images from the past, present as well as local artwork of the historic canal of Bingley. This will be a great calendar for any resident of Bingley especially those with an interest in the history of their town, which is what the Bingley and District Local History Society specialises in.
