Heritage Open Days Ilkley Manor House Bird Walk

11th Sep 2020 - 20th Sep 2020
8:00 am - 7:00 pm

Come and learn about the historic Manor House set in its courtyard garden. At the back is a grass expanse with trees over the remains of Olicana, Ilkley’s Roman fort. As you walk round look for images of visiting birds in the garden.

As part of Ilkley Manor House’s response to Covid19 we have put together a programme called “Inside Out” where we have been animating the courtyard space that fronts the medieval manor house. The Heritage Open Days theme of nature allows us to expand this offer to focus on visiting birds to the garden. We plan to have a beautifully created bird pebble trail for our visitors to enjoy.

Our heritage learning offer is a film and commentary featuring a well known local historian taking you round the outside of the manor house telling you about its history and the key architectural features that can be seen. This can be accessed via the QR code in the planter to the right of the front door. Alternatively, please click here.
