Hirst Wood North

Hirst Wood (north)  is located in the bottom of the Aire valley, midway between Bingley and Shipley. It is bounded on its northern edge by the River Aire, to the west the boundary is the Leeds Carlisle railway line. The Leeds Liverpool canal forms the eastern edge of the wood, and to the south is a mix of open space, industry and housing. Despite the amount of human activity squeezed into the valley the wood retains its character, and is a valuable recreational and wildlife amenity. There are other areas of woodland of varying sizes, some connected, throughout the this part of the Aire valley into which Hirst Wood fits as part of the mosaic
