Silsden West Yorkshire – A small town of approximately 8,000 inhabitants, Silsden in West Yorkshire lies in the Aire River Valley to the south-east of Skipton. A historic town, Silsden was listed in the Domesday Book and was considered the most significant village in the Craven district at this time (1086). Originally agricultural Silsden became involved in industry with the arrival of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and the emergence of the Indistrial Revolution. Some of the old mills that were built during this time still remain as a testament of its former glory. Silsden is about 8.4 miles from Skipton, West Yorkshire.
