Ilkley Moor walks are in many
cases are mis-named. Probably because of the famous song "On Ilkla Moor
Baht 'at" which has put the town itself on the map, there is often an
assumption that all the moorland above the town is all Ilkley Moor. In fact,
Ilkley Moor is only one section of the greater Rombalds Moor and not even
the majority of it.
I have found no definitive map
of what exactly constitutes Rombalds Moor but the bold black outline on the
attached map gives a rough approximation with the individual moors Ilkley
Moor, Burley Moor, Hawksworth Moor, Baildon Moor, Bingley Moor, Morton Moor,
and Addingham High Moor defined by the relevant parish boundaries (in
purple). My lines may not be pinpoint perfect but they give you the idea.
A number of my walks cross
Ilkley Moor but cross other parts of Rombalds Moor too. For ease of
reference, these are shown below.
If anyone knows a map which
precisely defines Rombalds Moor, please email to me.
