Protest Ramble: No New Grouse Shooting Licence for Ilkley Moor


When: Saturday, August 12 at 11 AM – 3 PM

Where: Cow & Calf Rocks, Hangingstone Road, Ilkley, LS29 8BT

What: Walk for Wildlife on Ilkley Moor!

Ilkley Moor is our region’s most iconic beauty spot, but Bradford Council has put this in jeopardy. The publicly owned moorland is the last on the country being leased for grouse shooting, with wildlife biodiversity declining and rare habitat being degraded as a result.

What shall we do? Saturday 12th August is the start of the grouse shooting season – the last before Bradford Council considers whether or not to renew a ten year lease of the moor for this purpose. We will hold a respectful walk for the moor’s wildlife, call on Council Leader Susan Hinchcliffe to not renew the deed and have a good picnic whilst we’re at it! Please bring cakes, home made banners, your friends and family.

Are you ready to ramble?
