Our Local Area

East Morton is an ever expanding village, situated between Bingley and Keighley, on the hillside of the Aire Valley.

The centre of the village is based around traditional stone built cottages, the Busfeild Arms, St Luke’s Church, the Morton Village Institute and the village CE primary school. These four institutions are the hub of the community and provide a wealth of activities that cater for all ages.

The village has a strong historical heritage as it was the base for numerous woollen and paper mills during the Industrial Revolution. There are a variety of footpaths and one particular walk leads up towards Sunnydale, now a place of solitude, but once a place of industry. In fact walkers do not need to walk far from the village to find themselves on the edge of Ilkley Moor and are blessed with amazing views.

East Morton has in the past been the proud recipient of awards from Yorkshire in Bloom and continues each year to impress with displays around the village.

Local places of interest include: East Riddlesden Hall and The Five Rise Locks. Further afield, but easily accessible from Crossflatts Railway Station (just over one mile away) is the world heritage site of Saltaire and the city centres of Leeds and Bradford.

East Morton is indeed a lovely (and friendly) place to live.
