Ilkley Moor on National Radio


If you were listening to Radio 4 "Today" this morning (Friday 18th November 2011), you'll have heard an item about our very own Ilkley Moor! 

"On Ilkley Moor Bah't 'at" has been Yorkshire's anthem since Victorian times, but now a brass band leader is launching a campaign to stop it from dying out.
Gordon Eddison, a school music teacher and musical director of Otley Brass Band, explained to John Humprhys why he is campaigning to keep the song alive.
