Ilkley Local History Hub

The hub provides a centre for storing and sharing information, images and documents about Ilkley's history. 

Share Ilkley information - Stories of events, people and buildings

Currently  during the Coronvirus pandemic we are not meeting in person. You can contact  Ilkley Local History Hub by email  or send a letter to Ilkley Manor House.

 Zoom  meetings are on the last Saturday of the month at 3pm.   

 In a statement the group said: “The Civic Society has for some time recognised the need for a local history facility in Ilkley and we now stand poised to make this a reality. We aim to create a hub where people can exchange information, pictures, stories of events, people and buildings.

Perhaps you have a puzzling family history question in Ilkley, with which we might be able to help you.

In 2019 we explored the theme of the Ben Rhydding Hydro which is featured in the Manor House heritage room. This amazing spa hotel was demolished over sixty years ago. Does your family have memories of this building and its grounds and its people? Come and share those memories at the Hub.

The Manor House is one of the oldest surviving buildings in West Yorkshire, with the earliest parts of the building dating back to the mid-14th century .
