It is split up into two main parts, Eldwick, the main populated part, and High Eldwick, the larger but less populated section, situated on Bingley Moor. Eldwick Memorial Hall is built from old bricks from the textile mill. Much of Eldwick is situated on a plateau beyond the crest of the wooded escarpment to the east of Bingley. A small area of Eldwick is situated upon the escarpment's steep slope, including the Prince of Wales Park. The village has Eldwick Beck running through it. The name has come to refer to the part of the village just before entry into High Eldwick, near the Methodist Church and The Acorn Pub.
Firefighters are into their second day of trying to bring the moorland fire under control. As the fire on Ilkley Moor rages on, two pictures have emerged which show how quickly the wildlife spread in the space of just an hour on Saturday evening. Walkers were quickly hurried off the popular tourist spot as smoke and flames licked the skyline, leading to plenty of concern from those living nearby.
We visited here last November and was very disappointed. We decided to return and see if things had improved. I'm glad to say it is definitely better thank goodness.
