Welcome to the Baildon Wiki

Drawing by Roy Lorrain-Smith

The purpose of this Wiki is to collect together information related to Baildon. It is not meant to provide the visitor with information about what is happening in Baildon now. There are other websites where you can find out what is happening - for example the Baildon Village website is supposed to be for current news and information but I have fallen behind with that. Try facebook or the Baildon Town Council website here.

This Wiki is for facts about the Baildon of the past. But what is the past you might ask. I think it is a good idea to add content almost as things happen. It might not be considered history but let's record these things so that we stand a chance of getting an accurate record instead of waiting until it is thought of as history and people have forgotten what happened when.

  • Website - how it came about
  • Please Contribute - One of the great things about Wikis is that you are supposed to be able to contribute. Unfortunately due to hundreds of people promoting such things as World of Warcraft, Plumbing in China, Titanium extraction etc. etc. I have removed the ability to register. If you want to contribute you will have to email me details. I will investigate a safer way of having contributors but at the moment it is down to me, Paul Marfell.
