Small and tranquil oasis alongside the River Wharfe in Otley

Manor Garth Park

A small park that runs alongside the River Wharf. A surprising break from the main roads of Otley.

Location

Otley is a market town on the apex point of the River Wharfe around 10-miles north-west of Leeds city centre.

Things to Do

We recommend using this park as a place to take a moment. It is only short, but with the water on one side and a small amount of greenery and trees its the perfect place to catch a breath.

History

Beneath the park and St. Joseph’s Primary School lay the ruins of a medieval manor house once owned by the Archbishop of York.

In 1986 archaeologists began to excavate part of the house before the construction of the school began. they found a number of buildings including the Archbishops private apartments and a chapel. Turns out that the chapel was build around the same time as the Norman Conquest!

Amenities

A couple of bins and benches. Nothing crazy!

Food and Drink

Picnic

There is a patch of grass, as well as some benches that lends itself for a sit down and a bit to eat. Definitely on a sunny day!

Café

The Wharfemeadows Park café makes a mean coffee and ice-cream. Keep an eye on the short opening times and if you fancy something bigger then get yourself to one of the pubs.

Pubs

Like the super dog friendly Black Horse on Westgate that serve up some top quality pub grub and local craft ales. Or pop into The Wharfe chippy on Bridge Street for some traditional fish and chips.

Parking

Best bet is to park at Wharfemeadow Park in Otley and walk across from there.
