 Devonshire Park, Keighley

We are returning to Keighley to visit the unique collection of trees in a beautiful arboretum at Devonshire Park. This park was opened in 1888 and provides an opportunity to view different species within a small area. Walking will be on good paths over a distance of about one mile with a slight uphill climb at the start. Lunch will be taken either in the open at the park or, should we experience rain, in Cliffe Castle itself, which will be our destination for the afternoon part of today's visit. Much work has been done in the grounds here and it will be interesting to see what progress has been made since a previous visit a couple of years ago. There are toilet facilities available within the Castle.

Leaders:  Sally Tetlow and Madeleine Massey
Minibus transport; depart Unitarian Church 9.30am.  Cost £6     There will be pick-ups along Branch-Keighley route
