Bradford: Urban Decay Part 2

I took some photos of different locations around Bradford, West Yorkshire, that appear in my novel.

These first ones are around the town centre: the City Hall, Wool Exchange, and some other bits. Unfortunately the City Hall front is covered in scaffolding at the moment, so I took some round the side.

The next group are of Lister’s Mill in Manningham (also known as Manningham Mill), a former Victorian textile mill. Some of it has been converted into apartments, whilst some of the buildings are still completely derelict. The whole complex is huge, made up of a number of different buildings, with the huge chimney which still dominates Bradford’s skyline.

The final area is the university area, just outside the city centre. I took a picture of some of the Victorian terraces, and the burnt out Interfaith Centre.
