West Yorkshire is home to some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK and Keighley is situated right in the heart of it, about twelve miles from Bradford and thirteen miles from Halifax. The small town is part of Bronte Country and is close to Haworth where the famous Bronte sisters lived and wrote the literary classics Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Keighley also found fame in the 1970s film The Railway Children, and The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway where the filming took place is one of the town’s most popular attractions. Many families bring their young children for a day out in Keighley to enjoy the attractions and the surrounding countryside, however, it is worth taking some precautions at busy times to avoid any slips, trips or falls.
How can I avoid an accident such as a slip, trip or fall in Keighley?
Young children are full of energy and love being outdoors but it is worth taking some care to prevent any public falls when visiting Keighley’s rich countryside. In July 2014 an eight-year-old child was severely injured when he jumped into the weir at Tinker Bridge on the North Beck river which flows through Keighley, and in August 2014 another five youngsters reportedly put themselves in danger by doing the same thing. In order to prevent children from getting carried away in their excitement take care to keep any eye on them at all times and equip them with rubber-soled shoes that give a good grip to prevent any accidental falls in public.
