There are more than 26 km of footpaths, bridleways and unsurfaced byways crossing the area, including Bradford’s Millennium Trail, the Great Northern Railway Trail and the Aire-Calder Bridleway Link.  Many of these originate from when Wilsden evolved from a group of separate hamlets into a village, which supported the mills of the Industrial Revolution. Most notable of these are the Grade II listed walled footpaths leading from Main Street and Cranford Place to the Recreation Ground and Wilsden Hill. 

The responsibility for registering Public Rights of Way and ensuring they remain open lies with Bradford Council and any access issues should be reported to them direct.

The Parish Council has produced a Footpaths of Wilsden map that can be purchased at either Wilsden Community Post Office or Wilsden Community Library for £1.50.

The map below shows footpaths in pink, bridleways in green and unsurfaced byways in dark blue.
