Welcome to Ilkley Civic Society

We are a local group interested in Ilkley past and present. We meet regularly to help preserve, develop, improve and research features of historic or public interest in Ilkley. We seek to promote high standards of planning and architecture and educate the public in geography, history, natural history and architecture. We also work with local schools and welcome people sharing information and memories about Ilkley. We reply to all enquiries. Come along to one of our public meetings or guided heritage walks or talks and find out more. Everyone welcome.


Next Highlights: 

July 27   2.45 for 3pm Walk - West Grove and East Grove Road with Alex Cockshott, meet at The Grove Gardens Parish Ghyll Road

  Joining the Civic Society's Blue Plaque on Hillside is the first in a proposed English Heritage Blue Plaques series outside London. It commemorates Daphne Steele of whom many may have happy memories.
