The Friends of St Ives is a group of volunteers who first gathered in 2003 to ensure that future developments to St Ives near Bingley in West Yorkshire (UK), are in keeping with the way the estate was originally designed and to ensure that all users can enjoy its beauty for many generations to come. We are hoping to work with Bradford Council and help with repairs and the development of facilities. We arrange guided walks and events throughout the year. Please see Forthcoming Events for details.

The estate of St Ives, was sold to the rural town of Bingley, West Yorkshire and its people by the Ferrand family in the 1920s, for £38,000.

The St Ives Estate offers rural tranquility with its woodland walks and abundant variety of flora and fauna.
