Living in Eastburn
Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well as being a pleasant place to live. So here’s some useful information about the area around Airedale Lea.
Leisure & Recreation
Eastburn Fitness Centre, a few minutes walk away, offers activities and classes ranging from Tai Chi and yoga to kick boxing and line dancing, while the Leisure Centre in Keighley incorporates leisure and learner pools, a fitness centre and a full-size sports hall. There are vast areas of open countryside to explore, from the farmland surrounding the village to the expanses of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, six miles to the north. The more unusual local attractions include the steam trains of the Worth Valley Railway, running from Keighley to the Brontë country.
Just a mile from the intersection of the A629 and A6068, Eastburn is well situated for access to Bradford, Leeds and Harrogate. Trains between Skipton and Leeds
