SHIPLEY GLEN

There is evidence of thousands of years of habitation and industry on Bracken Hall Green (beyond the Old Glen House Pub), in the steep sided glen and on Baildon Hill rising to the East.

There are many of the ‘cup-and-ring stones’ up near Dobrudden Farm. These are so old they have not been reliably dated nor their purpose identified.

Other remains indicate that people were living here at least 4,000 years ago.

The area’s history since then is full of intriguing stories of industry, entertainment and habitation.
