Bradford

Bradford, situated about ten miles west of Leeds in West Yorkshire, has a population approaching half a million. A wool trading centre from early times, Bradford reached the height of its prosperity with the coming of the Industrial Revolution in the nineteenth century, when it developed into one of Yorkshire’s major wool towns, where rows of slum housing sprang up in the shadow of smoke blackened woollen mills, contrasting the many fine Victorian city centre buildings founded on the wealth of the wool merchants, buildings such as the City Hall, the Wool Exchange and St George’s hall, all designed by local architects Lockwood and Mawson.
