This is Ilkley

Welcome to This is Ilkley, a site dedicated to bringing you fun, news and information for the whole of LS29.

Jim Coulson, creator of This is Ilkley, a site dedicated to LS29I’m Jim and I live in Burley-in-Wharfedale with my wife, two children and dog. You’ll usually find me in Burley House Field, rocking a pushchair whilst chucking a ball for an excitable Labrador and attempting to keep my kids from wading to where the stream breaches welly height.

Why I Started This is Ilkley

I love this part of Yorkshire and I wanted to share that through the medium of silly lists, strange observations, beautiful pictures and funny videos, and that is why I created This is Ilkley. Here’s something I made under my dad-blogging moniker, Bewildered Dad that shows how I feel about this part of the world:

You don’t need to have a family to appreciate Ilkley, Menston, Burley, Ben Rhydding, Addingham and all points in between though, and I intent to prove that on this site.

Website Content

Making website content is what I do for a living. If you need a local content writer or video maker, give me a shout. Learn more about the services I offer at my freelance work website. There’s always a good deal to be done for local clients, so just ask if you need anything.

In addition, I can create WordPress websites and perform content and SEO audits on your existing sites.
