Finding The Wagon Lane HWRC

The Bingley Dowley Gap tip is located to the north west of Bradford on the Bingley Road towards Keighley. Head out of the city through Lister Park on the A650, continuing as it becomes Bradford Road and then Bingley Road.

At the roundabout, take the first exit onto Sir Fred Hoyle Way, signposted Wilsden and Cottingley. Stay in the right lane as you approach the junction with Cottingley New Road to continue straight ahead on Bradford Road.

Turn right onto Wagon Lane at Beckfoot School, passing the sports club on your right onto Dowley Gap Lane. The HWRC is on your right immediately after you go over the bridge crossing Sir Fred Hoyle Way.

The address to find the tip is:

Dowley Gap HWRC,
Wagon Lane,
