In October 2011 the National Trust opened up their river bank and fields at East Riddlesden Hall, Keighley, and created a footpath for the public to use. The Aire Rivers Trust worked with Bradford Council, National Trust employees, and the Environment Agency to arrange for tyres and other debris to be removed from the river and taken away. The actual work in the river was done by the Environment Agency and Bradford Council removed the debris and rubbish taken from the river.
