The local area guide to living In Silsden

The pretty town and civil parish of Silsden is located in West Yorkshire, on the northern slope of the Aire Valley. The town sits between the popular towns on Keighley and Skipton. Although originally an agricultural area, industry soon developed following the construction of the nearby Leeds and Liverpool Canal. Following these developments, the region became an important centre for the mill industry – with some of the original buildings still in existence.

In modern times industry and manufacturing still remain a part of Silsden but tourism has grown too. In fact, it’s tourism that largely supports the local economy today. In and around the market town you’ll find plenty to see and do, with public houses aplenty, members’ clubs, and great amenities including supermarkets, shops, and a railway station. The beautiful countryside is another huge perk of living here, making it the ideal destination for outdoor enthusiasts and keen walkers.

Information about the local residents

Information on local residents was last collected in the 2011 census. At this time, the population was recorded at 8,268. Of the population, 20% were aged 65 and over and a quarter of the population were under the age of 16, in full time education. Even though one fifth of the population was aged 65 and over, only 13.7% of the population had retired – meaning many older residents here were still working.

Employment figures were generally good. At the time of the census, 67% of those of working age were in employment and only 1.6% unemployed – a very low figure in comparison to other regions. Popular industries included Human Health and Social Work Activities, Wholesale and Retail Trade, and Repair of Motor Vehicles and Motor Cycles. Construction, Manufacturing and Education were also listed in census data as major industries.

Rated ‘good’ by Ofsted in its latest report in 2010, parents can be confident of the school’s performance. There is also a junior school located in the heart of Silsden, Hothfield Junior School.

The secondary schools here are just as good, with the nearby South Craven School in Keighley rated as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2013. The academy provides education for secondary pupils up to the age of 18. According to the latest report by Ofsted, the school excelled in all areas and provided great opportunities for pupils. For those families requiring SEN support, Beechliffe Special School provides a great curriculum.

The road network and public transportation available in Silsden is good, making it easy to travel around the region. While Silsden does not have its own railway station, Steeton Station is just one mile in the nearby village of Steeton. The trains that run from these stations are good, providing a link for commuters heading to the popular cities of Leeds and Bradford. For travel further afield, it’s just as easy to hop onto a plane. Leeds Bradford Airport is just 16 miles away, while Manchester airport is located 60 miles from Silsden.

Local shops

Whether you’re looking for high street stores, independent shops, or a place to get your weekly groceries, you’ll find everything you need in and around Silsden. There’s a Co-operative Food in the town centre, ideal for all your essentials, and big brand supermarkets just outside the market town in Keighley. Here you’ll find an Asda and a Morrisons, reachable in approximately 15 minutes by car and 25 minutes via public transportation.

Within the market town you’ll find a variety of independent stores offering everything from gifts to furniture.
