THE next Ilkley Local History Hub meeting takes place on Saturday, February 27.

It will be held as a Zoom meeting and will start at 2.45pm for 3pm. The main topic under the spotlight will be the continued discussion on Brook Street, Ilkley.

There will be a short presentation on how the street has developed in the twentieth century, followed by discussion.

To register for the event email and organisers will issue a link to access the meeting.

Brook Street has undergone major changes since the 19th century. An early etching of the street shows small bridges over an open brook which flowed down to the River Wharfe.

The street saw many important parades and celebrations over the years, including Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897, fundraising parades for Coronation Cottage Hospital which opened in 1904, and the peace celebration parade in 1919.
